Linda Shecter is a 19-year ovarian cancer survivor. She stood out to the FORCE staff as an early, generous lead donor to the HBOC Hero Campaign in autumn 2018 with a donation significantly greater than her past support. FORCE pooled Linda’s gift with other pacesetter donations. Lead donations of $65,000 provided a dollar-for-dollar match pool for all year-end donations.
