Welcome to Lydia's Legacy for Gynecologic Cancer

Our mission is to raise awareness of gynecologic cancer through education and to fund gynecologic cancer research through donations.

Our Story

Lydia’s Legacy was founded in 2011 by Carin Ross Johnson in honor of her mother, Lydia Jon Greene, who passed away from complications of uterine cancer in 2010. Throughout her battle with cancer, Lydia’s chief concern was that there was not enough awareness or visibility about gynecologic cancers in the community. She confided in her daughter that she wanted her life and illness to be used in some way to help others. Creating this organization, increasing awareness and working towards finding a cure was Carin’s way of ensuring her mother’s legacy lives on.
