LISTEN: Restoring Faith in Humanity Heroes: Colleen's Dream Foundation

As we approach October — also known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month — one Valley charity is making sure everyone remembers that other types of cancer can be just as deadly to women.

Ovarian cancer is the fifth-deadliest for women and a Valley charity, Colleen’s Dream Foundation, is looking to help women in their fight.

The foundation has awarded nearly $500,000 in research grants since being founded in 2012 and is the largest privately-funded, ovarian cancer-specific nonprofit in the state.

Colleen’s Dream Foundation accepts donations online.
