The Crawford Crew

Pulling together to prevent cervical cancerSM


About cervical cancer preventionDiane Crawford survived cervical cancer in 2009 thanks to early detection and the quick work of her doctors. She founded The Crawford Crew less than three months after being diagnosed. Now cancer- free, Diane and The Crawford Crew are determined to make a difference.

Thanks to help from many volunteers and donors, The Crawford Crew has raised over $100,000 since being established in November 2009. We’re just getting started. We plan to raise awareness for women’s health every year, and we’d love for you to join us.


Our goal, simply, is to raise money and pour it into patient assistance, education, research, school and community outreach programs for cervical cancer, and other gynecological cancers.


Cervical Cancer Awareness FundraiserOur primary fundraiser each year is Raise a Racket for Cervical Cancer AwarenessSM to benefit The Ohio State University – Wexner Medical Center – The James. In addition, we sell handmade crystal heart pendants, appropriately known as Hearts of HopeSM. These pendants are made with Swarovski crystals and silver, and are created by our volunteers. Each year various organizations graciously raise funds on our behalf. Strike Out Cancer, Zumba for a Cause, Gather to Give, Drive Against Cancer, and The Pointless Pursuit are a few examples of the events that have raised money for The Crawford Crew. If you would like to host an event and have the proceeds benefit cervical cancer awareness we would love to partner with you. No event is too big or too small!
