Description

The Beth Martin Memorial Foundation is taking our party back to Bleacher Bar this year for our fundraiser! The 2nd Annual Strike Out Ovarian Cancer event will be on Friday November 9, 2018.

The Beth Martin Memorial Foundation, Inc. was created in 2017 to preserve and honor the legacy of Beth Martin, who battled ovarian cancer for three years with great courage and determination. All who knew Beth were inspired by her enthusiasm for life and enjoyed her sharp wit. From excelling in her career, to raising her daughter, to being the life of the party...Beth did it all. Those that were fortunate enough to be close to Beth, bore witness to a loyalty and strength like no other.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We aim to ease the struggles of women experiencing what Beth did. Our mission is to provide resources to women battling ovarian cancer so they can focus on what matters most: the fight.

Last year, we raised over $16,000 and were able to partner directly with Massachusetts General Hospital to give to their supportive care funds for women currently going through ovarian cancer treatments at MGH.

Here are the testimonials of the women who benefitted:

  • T. is a 56-year-old patient with ovarian cancer. As part of her treatment plan T. is required to come to the hospital every two weeks for an infusion. T. is at the end of her short-term disability pay and is very stressed and concerned about her financial situation. The goal is for T. to return to work when her treatments are completed, but until then she needs help paying her mortgage. With your help, Mass General has been able to contribute to T.’s mortgage.
  • K. is a 44-year-old patient being treated for ovarian cancer. She is married with a 5-year old son, and was working part time as a dental technician. She and her husband were having difficulty making ends meet during her treatment because she could not return to work. Having a wig was very important to this young woman, however her insurance would not cover it. With your help, K. was able to obtain a wig from Images Boutique and feel more confident about her appearance.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to helping these women last year. We are hoping to help even more this year!

Anyone who knew Beth also knew what a huge Boston Red Sox fan she was, which is why we are choosing to have our fundraiser at Bleacher Bar again this year! Bleacher Bar is a new and unique venue inside of Fenway Park that is located directly under the bleachers and it is open to center field! There will be food, door prizes, a cash bar, and a silent auction. (If you have an item that you would be willing to donate for the silent auction, please contact Jessica at jfmartin1123@gmail.com.)

If you are not able to attend the event, but would like to donate to the foundation, we would be grateful for your support! You can donate directly to The Beth Martin Memorial Foundation by clicking "Tickets" and selecting "Donation to BMMF".

We greatly appreciate any donation to help as many women as we can.

Please stay tuned for updates!
