On November 2, 2019, Melissa Rosenberg, Dana Baratta and Jennifer Fife hosted Dancing for NED (No Evidence of Disease), an evening of food, fun and dancing under the stars that celebrates the gift of life. The event raised more than $150,000 to benefit the ovarian cancer research efforts of Dr. Beth Y. Karlan (FEL ’89), vice chair of women’s health research in the UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and director of cancer population genetics at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.
With philanthropic support from Dancing for NED and others, Dr. Karlan’s studies have helped shift the standard of care for ovarian cancer toward a new era of targeted therapies. This year’s event will have an immediate impact, bringing hope to women battling ovarian cancer by enabling Dr. Karlan to aggressively expand UCLA gynecologic oncology clinical trials, profile tumors, personalize therapies and offer new treatment options for inherited cancers.
