Give to the Max MN 2015

Give to the Max Day is nearly here…Thursday, November 12th to be exact! What exactly is Give to the Max Day? Well, it’s the great Minnesota “give together” day! You can give to your favorite charity and help make a difference.

Please be a part of Minnesota’s annual day of giving! Go to and enter in Charlene’s Light…A Foundation for Ovarian Cancer when searching for an organization. From there, it’s easy to donate. If you choose to donate before November 12th, all scheduled gifts will transact on November 12th. Your donations will go towards ovarian cancer research and patient support.

Thank you for your generosity. Your donation DOES make a difference! We are fighting hard in the ovarian cancer battle and we won’t give up!


The Mission of Charlene’s Light:

  • Educate women and the community about symptoms of ovarian cancer
  • Raise money for ovarian cancer research

The following video was created by JoAnn Martin, a Charlene’s Light board member who passed away in September 2013.  This video is for all women. It describes the early symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and may help you understand the need for early detection.

About This Foundation

This foundation was created in honor and memory of Charlene Postigo, my dear friend who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the fall of 2006.

Like so many others she had no symptoms, which is very concerning about this type of cancer.  Charlene’s first symptom was actually brought to her attention by her cat one evening, which jumped on her bed and walked across her stomach causing pain. (More)
