[Source: TGen] - The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation recently presented $15,000 for ovarian cancer research to the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen).
That amount brings to $50,000 the total amount raised by the organization named for Anne Rita Monahan, a Phoenix woman who used her initials to encourage women to "ARM yourself against ovarian cancer."
Funds were raised at the 2nd annual Tea for TEAL, the color associated with ovarian cancer. The English-style tea for 160 people was held Feb. 2 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, the first time the event was held after Monahan lost her battle to ovarian cancer in May. She was 47.
