Sister Steps Walk —Why we walk —to help find a cure!

Several articles have stated that 50% – 80% of women with recurrent Granulosa Cell Tumor of the ovary (GCT) will die from the disease, just as the Founder of  Granulosa Cell Tumour Research Foundation  Sladjana (Sofi) Crosley, did. That is why we need research on GCT and why we have established the “Sladjana M. Crosley Fund for GCT Research”.  Sister Steps Walk is a  5K  event to raise awareness and much needed money for continued research done by the Granulosa Cell Tumor Research Foundation and the recipients of their grants. This is a rare disease and more research is needed for new methods of treatment and a hope for a cure. Granulosa cell tumor of the ovary is an uncommon tumor of low malignant potential (LMP) and many articles add that GCT has a “low rate of recurrence”.  Often this is presented as a comforting factor, implying that you do not have to worry that much about recurrence or dying of the disease. Which we know just isn’t true. It s also known, however, that “Low-grade ovarian cancers and LMP  tumors generally resist conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy”,  This is not always a “benign” dis ease and can recur at any point over your lifetime, even up to 35 years after a diagnosis.
