The Foundation for Women’s Cancer was founded by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) in 1991. The Foundation for Women’s Cancer is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization dedicated to funding research and training, and ensuring education and public awareness of gynecologic cancer prevention, early detection and optimal treatment. Foundation programs are designed to Raise public awareness of ways to prevent, detect and optimally treat gynecologic cancers; Provide education about gynecologic cancers and the importance of seeking care first from a gynecologic oncologist if a gynecologic cancer is suspected or diagnosed; Support promising, innovative gynecologic cancer research and train a cadre of clinicians/scientists to participate in clinically relevant research. All members of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) are members of the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. SGO works primarily with physicians and other health professionals, whereas the Foundation’s efforts are directed toward the public, making their educational missions complementary. To better understand the work of the Foundation for Women’s Cancer, it is useful to define the following terms: Gynecologic oncology is a field of medical specialization that deals with the study and treatment of malignancies arising in the female reproductive tract. Ovary, endometrium, cervix, vulva and vagina are the sites of origin of the most common and serious gynecologic malignancies. Although they are often discussed as a group, they have significant differences in etiology, prevention, detection, treatment and likelihood of cure. Gynecologic oncologists are cancer specialists whose training is first that of an obstetrician/gynecologist, after which they have had two to four years of structured training in all of the effective forms of treatment of gynecologic cancers (surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and experimental treatments) as well as the biology and pathology of gynecologic cancer. The unique aspect of this training is that it allows patients to receive the mode of therapy (i.e., surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy) or combinations of therapy most likely to be successful without fragmenting their care among many physicians. Gynecologic oncologists practice in a variety of settings (hospitals, cancer centers, and private practices).
