In October 2012, a dream was realized for two dynamic ovarian cancer survivors: Anne Tonachel and Robin Bray. Their dream was to provide a restorative retreat for other ovarian cancer survivors in the northeast. When the amazing Kennedy family of Camp Kieve and The Kennedy Learning Center provided the retreat space (in honor of a family member with ovarian cancer), this restorative retreat was born.
Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, MA is hosting a Oneinforty symposium on the increased risk that Ashkenazi Jews have of inheriting the BRCA mutation that can cause not only breast cancer but ovarian cancer (along with prostate cancer too). The event will be held May 23, 2018.
