Spartan’s alum responds to Go Blue by raising funds to fight ovarian cancer

September 19, 2013

MSU Alumni Association Executive Director, Scott Westerman, issued a challenge to the Spartan faithful after “Go Blue” appeared over their stadium last Saturday. Saying the money spent on that flight could have been put to better use, he challenged Spartan's nationwide to exceed that amount in donations to the MIOCA .  Scott's wife, Colleen, is treated at University of Michigan Hospital for ovarian cancer, and he will challenge his counterpart at the UMAA to do the same, "Let's show the world what Leaders, Lifesavers and World Changers do".

The response has been tremendous. We are greatly appreciative of Scott & Colleen and everyone that has donated! We will use these funds to further our mission and help save women’s lives. Thank you from the MIOCA Board, volunteers, and all ovarian cancer survivors! ,
