OAK gives $5000 donation to support early detection of Ovarian Cancer
Honoring of Dr. John R van Nagell Jr, Director of the U of K Ovarian Cancer Screening Program and Mary Margaret Krahulec of the Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association (KEHA)
Louisville, Ky. September 28, 2016 : Ovarian Awareness of Kentucky recently announced that they would be honoring the soon retirement of Dr. John R van Nagell Jr and Ms. Mary Margaret Krahulec with a $5000 donation to the University of Kentucky’s Ovarian Cancer Screening Program.
Dr. John R van Nagell is the Director of the University of Kentucky Ovarian Cancer Screening. Ovarian Awareness of Kentucky (OAK), its survivors and its board fully appreciates Dr. van Nagells expertise in ovarian cancer early detection and research screening. Many of our survivors have been involved with the UofK program and is the reason why they were diagnosed at an earlier stage, extending their chances to live a longer life.
Mary Margaret Krahulec, has been involved with the Kentucky Homemaker leadership for many years in Shelby County and the Seven County Louisville Area. This year she was voted KEHA State President. The Kentucky Homemakers has been supporting the Ovarian Cancer Screening Research Project at the University of Kentucky for 40 years. During this time, KEHA has donated over 1 million dollars to this program! Over 52,000 women have been screened in those 40 years, 184 ovarian cancers have been detected and as of 2 years ago 102 of these women are still living. Those statistics that are not typical of late stage/diagnosed ovarian cancer.
Unfortunately, Mary Margaret found herself one of those newly diagnosed during a routine Ovarian Cancer Screening at UofK. Determined to fight and in gratitude to KEHA for encouraging the UofK screening program, Mary intends to spend the next three years of her term as KEHA State President promoting the UofK screening program in hopes that other women of Kentucky will be diagnosed early for treatment, hence prolonging their lives.
OAK is very proud to honor Dr. John R van Nagell and Mary Margaret Krahulec with this $5000 donation to the UofK Ovarian Cancer Screening Program. OAK actively promotes ovarian cancer awareness through its support groups, programs and events. OAK firmly believes that one day there will be a cure for Ovarian Cancer. And when that day comes, OAK, along with its supporters, will have been a part of it. You can find more information about OAK at www.oakky.org.

Ovarian Cancer Research Kentucky license plate It is our mission to have 900 Kentucky Ovarian Cancer Research license plates ordered and prepaid for by the end of 2016 so that the state will begin to manufacture these plates.Purchasing a KY Ovarian Cancer license plate is a unique way to show your support for ovarian cancer and spread awareness of this quiet killer. Funds raised through this project will provide critical research needed in developing an early screening test and finding a cure. A prepayment of $25 is required to reserve a plate and the remaining balance of $9 or $19 (depending on the individual vehicle renewal date) is due when the pate is picked up. The state will not begin to manufacture these special license plates until we have 900 license plates ordered. The $ will be held in a special escrow account that was set up for this project until all 900 plates have been reserved. To order one of these special plates please print the brochure, commit & send it back to us with your check for $25.00. Thank you for your support!
