Make a Gift in Memory of Cherlynn R. Webb

Make a gift in memory of Cherlynn to support endometrial cancer research

Cherlynn R. Webb received her “Servant Wings” on Tuesday evening, August 3, 2021 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio (Toledo). She was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in October of 2020 and passed away suddenly from therapeutic complications. Through Cherlynn's experience battling endometrial cancer, her and her three guys, Oscar (Husband), Weston (Son) and Brenton (Son), became strong advocates for women's health and specifically endometrial cancer.

Endometrial cancer is impacting women at a rapid pace. Specifically, Black women are disproportionately impacted by endometrial cancer at an even higher rate than other demographics. Researchers have discovered that mortality rates for aggressive endometrial cancer were more than 1.5 times higher among Black women compared with white women. The exact reasons for this disparity continue to be researched. It is because of these reasons that we have elected to start the Cherlynn R. Webb Fund for endometrial cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.

Cherlynn was a true Ohioan. She loved The Ohio State University football and basketball teams. Even though she lived in Toledo, she always enjoyed visiting Columbus. Cherlynn attended many football games in 'The Shoe' and basketball games in 'The Schott'.

The Webb family has contributed and raised $15,698.86 thus far. The James' Endometrial Cancer team cannot start using the funds for research until the Cherlynn R. Webb fund reaches $22,000 per the rules state. The goal is to get a little over $6000 more so the funds become available for use. However, even after this goal is surpassed, the fund will stay open. So throughout the years ahead, when Cherlynn is on your mind, when you have a fond memory of your times with her, or even think about women's health in general, please consider donating to the Cherlynn R. Webb fund. The Webb family believes in the people at The James to help push endometrial cancer research in the right direction to help save the lives of all women who encounter this disease. Thank you.
