Step Up North Dallas Pickleball Tournament

Step Up Dallas, we're playing pickleball September 24, 2024, to raise awareness and funds for low-grade serous ovarian cancer.

LGSOC is a rarer subtype that tends to affect younger people than other types of ovarian cancer, with an average age at diagnosis of 45. It has a high rate of recurrence, few effective treatments, and unlike other types of cancers, does not receive federal research funding.  Donations to our pickleball tournament support STAAR Ovarian Cancer Foundation's Step Up America campaign to fund research for effective treatments to improve the outcomes for people who have low-grade serous ovarian cancer.

Last year, STAAR raised funds to award $76,000 to the University of Texas MD Anderson research into Trametinib resistance, and $250,000 to Memorial Sloan Kettering to research which patients are more likely to respond to chemotherapy.
