Serena Scott Thomas runs 50 miles for In Situ Foundation

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 4.19.58 PM

Serena Scott Thomas, Calabasas local and real estate agent at Ewing & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, has made major strides in support of the In Situ Foundation — a nonprofit organization which promotes training dogs to detect cancer in humans. Jan. 10, Scott Thomas ran 50 miles in The Avalon 50 race, which she pledged to complete on her campaign page for the In Situ Foundation. By Monday, Jan. 12 more than $4,995 had been raised by 74 contributors.

Scott Thomas was inspired to raise money and awareness of the In Situ Foundation by her friend Anne, who died of ovarian cancer.

“She died of Ovarian Cancer, aka ‘The Silent Killer,’ so named because it is virtually impossible to detect until it’s deadly, when patients are Stage 3 or 4,” Scott Thomas said. “Anne was a miracle because when she was diagnosed, she was told she had 6 months to live and yet she survived, courageously and without complaint, almost 9 more years.”

Scott Thomas has been training for the race since August 2014, when she first decided to participate to honor Anne’s memory.

“I wanted to push myself to do something that I never thought I could do, that would challenge me physically, mentally and spiritually,” Scott Thomas said. “If Anne could put up with all that pain, fear and discomfort, I could run 50 miles and then maybe even 100 and raise money for Ovarian Cancer in Anne’s memory.”

According to, the In-Situ Foundation is dedicated to training dogs to detect cancer in humans.

“Published studies have shown that dogs can detect early stage cancer with 88 percent specificity, and 99 percent sensitivity,” the In Situ Foundation website states. “Dogs could help provide an extremely accurate, low-cost, non-invasive, early detection screening for cancer. Early detection is our greatest cure, as of now.”

Scott Thomas believes that early detection, such as canine cancer detection, is the key to prolonging the lives of those suffering cancer.

“The In Situ dogs have been proven at 98% accurate in the early detection of human cancer in a published study,” Scott Thomas said. “If this had been available for Anne, the outcome would have been different.”
