According to Kelli Moshen, “”Excerpts, is very important and dear event to myself and Project Moshen as my mother, our biggest supporter, a year ago lost her battle to ovarian cancer. Only having nine months to fight, my family and I teamed up with the NOCC to help mend our broken hearts and help spread awareness to help those in need. This evening has been dedicated to my mom, Jodi Moshen, and other survivors, fighters, and families who have been in contact with ovarian cancer. Project Moshen’s mission along with the NOCC is to help start the conversation as it is never too early.” A highlight of the evening will be a piece choreographed by Kelli Moshen, “Remembering  Jodi Moshen”, a tribute to her mother.
