Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to our team, and we appreciate all the support we can get!

Our mom, Ann Mottola, passed away on May 30, 2017 after living with ovarian cancer for almost 6 years. She was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer in November 2011 and underwent surgery and then various chemos at both MGH and Dana Farber. The doctors, nurses and volunteers we met along this journey were wonderful. The runners, walkers, and supporters who have joined us through the years have kept us going.

We started Ann's Fans as a 6-person team in 2012, shortly before mom's first recurrence. Since then we have had 80-person teams and raised more than $15,000. We've brought awareness to ovarian cancer and to the importance of ovaries. But finding a cure remains top priority.
