About Message From Marli Foundation (MFM)
MFM is a non-profit, charitable organization founded in 2010 to help raise awareness about ovarian cancer and to advocate for early detection of the disease. Following Marlene Wolff’s Stage IV diagnosis, her husband and three children created the foundation to help educate women and medical professionals about the symptoms of the “silent killer” because once the symptoms become evident, the disease has advanced to the most dangerous levels.

By helping women become aware of ovarian cancer symptoms, it is our mission that we can help them receive early diagnosis and treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest gynecologic cancer and the fifth leading cause of death in women in the United States with 22,000 women diagnosed annually. 80% of them are diagnosed at stage III or IV. The five-year survivability for this disease when diagnosed in the latter stages is approximately 15%. When diagnosed at stage I or II, the five-year survivability increases to 90%.

The funds donated to the foundation are used to create a variety of informational resources regarding ovarian cancer thus extending Message from Marli’s global campaign. The literature produced is used to supply medical organizations with valuable information for patients, families, and caregivers at institutions such as the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
