Alabama is one of three states who currently have an ovarian cancer car tag. The Waldrep family was instrumental in motivating the State of Alabama to sell the Drive Out Ovarian Cancer car tag after the death of their daughter, Brittany Waldrep. When asked, Megan Waldrep-Stalnaker, Brittany’s sister why it was so important to her family to establish the car tag for the state of Alabama she said, “Presently, the majority of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in the later stages because there is no accurate screening test to detect the illness at its earliest stage.
The Drive Out Ovarian Cancer car tag raises money for research in hopes that one day, doctors will discover an early detection test for ovarian cancer, so that women will be tested for this insidious disease at their annual checkups just like cervical and breast cancers.”
Prior to her diagnosis, Brittany was enjoying her first “real” job, post- college, and saving to buy a house. She was a great daughter, a loving sister and devoted aunt. Britt loved her many friends, and was always ready to go out to eat, to the lake or to the beach. But, she was taken too soon and her loss has left an empty place in the lives of all of those who loved her.
The proceeds from the sell of these tags go to ovarian cancer research at University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital.
The NLOCF Making a Difference Funds offer individuals and families a unique and personal way to pay tribute to loved ones affected by ovarian cancer. To create a fund, donors are asked for a commitment of $5,000. To reach this goal, you can host a fundraiser, donate immediate tax-deductible gifts of cash, stocks or other assets or planned gifts through wills, charitable gift annuities, pooled income funds, life insurance or charitable trusts. Staff from the Norma Livingston Foundation will assist you in setting up a Making a Difference Fund in your loved ones name, planning fundraising events, and tracking donations.
As part of this Fund, you or your loved one will have a personalized Tribute Page on the Foundation’s website to share your story and photographs. Whether you make a one-time gift to establish your Fund or continue to make ongoing contributions each year, your Fund will make a difference in other women’s lives.
