Women in Need Fund in Memory of Caryl Byrnes
Honoring Caryl Byrnes, Ruchi Garg MD, and Christine Bloom
Inova Fairfax Women's Hospital
Caryl Byrnes was determined to win her fight against cancer. In the end, her cancer didn’t play fair, which can often be the case. Caryl, however, refused defeat without a fight. She would claim victory and her triumph would benefit hundreds of women. In partnership with her oncologist Dr. Ruchi Garg, and Gynecology Oncology Patient Navigator Christine Bloom, they established the Women in Need (WIN) Fund.

Caryl and her family generously seeded the WIN Fund and, in less than two years, the fund has raised more than $100,000 to help women less fortunate than Caryl fight and win their battles with cancer.
While Caryl may not be here to witness the difference she is making in the lives of women with cancer, she will be remembered by the women and their families for her winning legacy.
