Team Gramanama for Ovarian Cancer
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year.
Each of these women is central to a family. Every one of these women has people who love her. Just being there to support and honour her means everything. That’s why I’m participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada ‘Walk of Hope' in Ajax.
My mom is one of these women who have been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in May of 2018. She is currently battling this ruthless disease – she has already bravely endured 3 of 6 rounds of chemotherapy and is now just two weeks away from a massive surgery. After a short recovery, she will be back to finish her last 3 rounds of chemo with hopes of remission after this life changing fight.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a granddaughter and a friend to many. Myself, my 2 beautiful girls, my sister, 2 nieces and all my female friends and family are at risk.
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 – the tiniest amount helps makes a difference. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this Saturday September 8th, 2018 in Ajax - register online as part of our team ‘Gramanama’s Ovary Achievers’. Together we can make a difference.
Thank you so much,
Courtney Metcalf & The Gramanama's Ovary Achiever's Team
