Bryan's Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope
Hi Friend or Family Member (Or stranger),
As you may know, I lost my sister, Heather, to Ovarian Cancer on October 18, 2015. It breaks my heart every day that I'll no longer be able to talk, laugh, cry, share, eat, hug, or do anything whatsoever with her. My first daughter, Aubrey Heather, was born less than a month after Heather died, so my sister just missed being an aunt (Again), something she really loved. Jenny, my wife, just gave birth to our second daughter, Hayley, in May, and what her birth has brought to my attention once again is how much I miss my sister every single day.
Aubrey's and Hayley's births, and Heather's death, also bring to light the fact that there are today thousands of Canadian women living with ovarian cancer; another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year. I don't want my two girls to be one of those 2,800. Ever.
That’s why my entire family and I are participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
This year’s goal is to raise $2.1 million. Every dollar I raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support, increase awareness, and fund vital research so that we can change the future for the women we love.
Please provide your support by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join me. Together we can make a difference.
