A Washington & Jefferson College honors student, Magellan scholar, athlete—and cancer survivor—sophomore Haley Roberts is on a mission to raise awareness of ovarian cancers and help others fight the same disease she overcame.
At 16 years old, Roberts was diagnosed with granulosa cell tumor (GCT), a rare form of ovarian cancer. Two years later, with the support of the Magellan Project, the biology major was afforded the opportunity to travel to New Zealand, where she studied with the world’s leading researchers of the disease at the Granulosa Cell Tumour Research Foundation and University of Auckland.
