Helen M. is Still Walking!
This year in Canada 2,800 women will be diagnosed with this disease and half will not survive past five years. Every contribution will help Ovarian Cancer Canada change lives affected by ovarian cancer through research, advocacy, and support.
I am proud and blessed to be a healthy 14-year survivor. In spite of 3 recurrences I have been cancer-free for 6 years. With gratitude I have participated in 9 annual Ovarian Cancer Canada Walks, leading "Helen's Heroes" for 6 of them.
This year I am walking for my friend "Sue's Teal Falcons" in the Hamilton Walk of Hope at Valley Park, September 8th.
Every dollar raised supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds support women & families living with disease, educational programs, and VITAL RESEARCH so that we can change the outcome for many women.
Advocacy is our new thrust. Thanks to the tireless efforts of faithful staff and volunteers the April 2019 Federal Budget increased ovarian cancer funding by $10 million now directing $23.8 for research. (Breast cancer has been receiving $74 million annually)
Thank you for your many years of caring. Any support is greatly appreciated. Together we can make a difference.
