The Clearity Foundation will hold its 10th anniversary celebration themed, “Teal Woman: Celebrating Life. Honoring Courage. Recognizing Progress. Changing the Story for Ovarian Cancer,” on Sunday, September 16, 2018 (www.tealwoman2018.com). The event, which coincides with Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, will take place at Paradise Point Resort from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. and will include a variety of food stations and auction items. The Clearity Foundation (www.clearityfoundation.org), launched in 2008, has become a trusted resource to hundreds of women and families—an advocate for patients, a champion of personalized medicine, a promoter of science and a credible source of hope for the ovarian cancer community.

Susan Taylor, former local NBC news anchor and director of external affairs at Scripps Health, will serve as emcee. The event will feature speed painter/performance artist Amy Burkman, an ovarian cancer survivor, who will create two canvases for the event’s auction; a 90 minute set by the popular live band of Eve Selis; and a performance by the vivacious and fun-loving musician, and runner-up on America’s Got Talent, Caly Bevier. Bevier, an ovarian cancer survivor at the age of 15, was featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Celebration includes an ocean bay front reception, a variety of food stations, an Awareness Fair featuring educational booths and demonstrations, and a live band.

Andy Laats is this year’s Honorary Committee Chair and Honorary Committee Members include Carin Canale, John & Julie Crawford, Joyce Glazer, Carol Kerley & Linda Dunham, Angie Lasagna, Dr. Laura Shawver, Susan Taylor, and Robin Toft.

The Clearity Foundation is a San Diego 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that helps ovarian cancer patients and their physicians make better-informed treatment decisions, based on molecular profiling of tumors.
