The Manja Gideon Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness of and supporting research and projects related to ovarian cancer, HBOC, and BRCA gene mutations. Our foundation philosophy emphasizes collaboration and mutual support in the pursuit of empowering women and educating them about the symptoms, early detection and prevention of this disease. We provide specialized knowledge about ovarian cancer on this website and also participate in projects that align with our mission. Previous collaborative projects and more information can be found here.
