Gynecologic Oncologist & Director of Precision Medicine, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey
Welcome once again dear family and friends to our campaign page. It has been little more than a year now since Rita’s death…a year of great loss for us all as her most loved family and friends. Each of us, in our own personal way holds close the memory of how special she was. On a more universal scale however, we must not forget how special Rita was for ALL women in their battle with this most dreaded disease. Her signi?cant contributions did, and will continue to add to the research in the hopes for a cure of ovarian cancer.
In this work, our very special Dr. Rodriguez continues to extend the boundaries of this research. Her work with Rita more than six years ago placed her among the pioneers of ovarian cancer research utilizing among other investigations, genomic analysis in order to and a more personalized / precision approach to treating the disease. She, along with her colleagues recently represented the Cancer Institute in Washington DC to discuss the President’s new nationwide collaboration in cancer research. Dr. Rodriguez is a credit to her profession, and to the passion in her research. She exempli?es the highest of standards to be found at this very special facility known as the Rutgers Cancer Institute Of New Jersey. On a more personal note, the warmth, dedication, and compassion that Rita and I felt from Dr. Rodriguez…indeed, that all of her patients feel will never be forgotten. Our fund supports and honors them all.
Your gracious support of our fund these past few years has been heartwarming, indeed overwhelming. We are honored to have you as family and friends. As was Rita…..you are very special people, and we deeply appreciate your consideration in continuing to help us. For what Rita started…now in her memory for ALL women…Thank You
Marty, Brian & Shana, Gene & Elana,
