Detecting Ovarian Cancer

Searching for Better Detection: The 'Holy Grail' of Ovarian Cancer

Researchers are on the hunt for a better biomarker in ovarian cancer that could detect the disease in earlier stages.
While survival rates among patients with ovarian cancer have increased in recent years thanks to newer and more personalized treatment approaches – including the groundbreaking addition of PARP inhibitors – one major question still remains: How can the disease be detected in its earlier stages?

A Farewell Gathering for Batoul

Today those of us who could met at Anne & Dick's in Cambridge to say farewell to our dear friend, Batoul who will be returning to Kuwait with her family at the end of August. What can I say except that all of us at TTT will miss Batoul's infectious smile, wonderful sense of humor, the enthusiasm she brings to TTT and to everything she does! Oh and did I mention her fabulous cooking skills and generosity?

Anne as always provided wonderful hospitality by hosting all of us for a terrific pot luck. Dick worked quietly behind the scenes along with Eva, also helped to ensure that everything went smoothly.

Kathy & Bill came down from ME along with Donna and Deirdre. Marilyn & Cathy drove in from VT and  many of our MA contingent also came: Diane, Eva, Peggy, Sue, Paul, Kim, Christine, Debra, Eric, Susan & John, Patti, Devorah & Margaret. It was a great send-off

The food was fabulous (of course) and it was wonderful to catch up with everyone.

Batoul, Mohammad, Abbas and Noah will be returning to Kuwait in August and Batoul will be resuming her full load of teaching come the fall semester. We of course, wish her and her wonderful family all the best and look forward to her visits back here. We love you Batoul!!!
