Our History 

The Judy’s Mission Ovarian Cancer Foundation was created to honor Judith Liebenthal Robinson, Ph.D. (Judy), a NASA scientist, who despite habitual exercise, a consistently healthy diet, and regular medical examinations, was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer and died within a year.  While battling ovarian cancer, it was Judy’s mission to raise awareness about the vague symptoms and ineffective screening procedures associated with ovarian cancer.  She inspired all who knew her; and as a result, friends came together to create the Judy’s Mission Ovarian Cancer Foundation a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was founded in November 2010.
