Welcome to Peggy's Page!
In Canada today, there are 17,000 women living with ovarian cancer. Each of these women is central to a family, every one of these women have people who love her. This year, I am walking for HER - and I'm walking for ME.
As you know I was first diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2014 - and exactly 4 years later was diagnosed with a recurrence. This is happy/sad news. Sad in that it came back, happy in that in the world of Ovarian Cancer, 4 years is an extraordinarily long time. There is just not enough good science yet to make this a consistent reality for my sister survivors - and let's face it - four years is a pretty low bar!
Join me in my walk as I celebrate one year of health and remission. I feel fantastic - come and see!
I am walking because ovarian cancer affects communities. It’s certainly touched my life, and it needs to be stopped.
This walk is special to me because it honours women and families touched by ovarian cancer and celebrates the hope that I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease. Please join me there!
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. Ovarian Cancer Canada has been there for me in a deep and personal way, offering assistance and information, encouragement and an opportunity to get involved and make a difference. Every dollar we raise as Pickett's Parade 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 support my Walk by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, please join me on my team, Pickett's Parade in Niagara Falls at Oakes Park on Sunday, September 8, 2019 - in support and in your walking shoes!
Together we can make a difference.
