Bio

The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation (GCF) was established in 1991 by the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) to promote public awareness about the prevention, early detection and treatment of gynecologic cancers. SGO, with approximately 1,200 members, is the only national professional organization for gynecologic oncologists. All SGO members are members of the Foundation. Gynecologic oncologists are board-certified obstetrician/gynecologists with an additional three to four years of specialized training in treating gynecologic cancers from an American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology-approved program. This subspecialty program provides training in the biology and pathology of gynecologic cancers, as well as in all forms of treatment for these diseases, including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and experimental treatments. In addition to engaging in public education, GCF also supports research and training related to gynecologic cancers. GCF is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization that advances its mission by increasing public and private funds that aid in the development and implementation of programs to meet these goals.
