|ABOUT KICKING FOR THE DREAM
Kicking For The Dream was created by NFL Kicker Billy Cundiff as a way to support the Colleen's Dream Foundation.
Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 and supports research for early detection and improved treatment for ovarian cancer.
The story of Colleen’s Dream started in 2007 when Colleen Drury, Billy Cundiff's mother-in-law, was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. The family's eyes were opened to a new world that was filled with invasive surgery, harsh chemotherapy, and lots of uncertainty.
Ovarian cancer is often referred to as “the silent killer” because many women do not discover their disease until it is in the late stages, which leads to many women succumbing to the disease within a short period of time. Unlike cervical or breast cancer, ovarian cancer does not have a standardized early detection procedure. When it comes to women’s health, ovarian cancer proves to be one of the deadliest diseases.
Colleen’s Dream Foundation believes it is important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, there is an incredible opportunity for research and education.
Colleen's Dream Foundation is working with some of the top research hospitals and universities that are researching ovarian cancer. Offering seed funding to young investigators, Colleen's Dream Foundation will fund cutting-edge research by some of the brightest, young minds in the world.
Colleen's Dream Foundation is a qualified 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.
