For Our Warrior Women That Inspire, Lift Us Up And Touch Our Lives.
Michelle’s story started with her stage 3-breast cancer diagnosis in her thirties when her youngest daughter was 1 year old. Michelle fought hard and showed up everyday in her life. It was during this health crisis that Michelle decided to train for a triathlon during her sixteen weeks of chemotherapy. Eleven days after her last chemotherapy, Michelle swam, biked and ran her way back to health. This was only the beginning. Michelle is celebrating five years of life this year!
"I am grateful for the opportunities in my life. I carry my sister survivors and fallen Warriors in my heart as they are the true heroes, facing a life threatening diagnosis with courage, grace and a fierce Love of Life. These women are my friends, mothers, daughters and sisters". Each of us makes a difference and we touch so many lives - Michelle Judson

What your Donation Supports
Your donation will support Women's Health research.
Through the end of the year, the Changewear Warrior Women fund will support ovarian cancer research by Dr. Tanja Pejovic at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.
MD, PhDOregon Health & Science University
I have always had interest in cancer and its genetic origins. In 2008, I started Oregon Ovarian Cancer Registry (OOCR) at OHSU. It has been modeled on Gilda Radner Registry for Ovarian Cancer - the largest and oldest ovarian cancer registry in the country. OOCR has quickly become essential to our own research and it has connected us to the best research groups in the country. In this way many of Oregon 300 new ovarian cancer patients per year have been exposed to the newest advancement and had option to participate in the latest clinical trials. The reasons to motivate me to continue this effort are many - from scientific curiosity, to challenging the ability to organize and maintain large number of sample and large database, to helping individual patients choose the most promising and novel treatments.
