THIS IS MY STORY .
In November 2017 , I was diagnosed with lung cancer. After many tests and specialist referalls it was determined that I was a candidate for surgery. On Jan 29 , 2018 they removed my upper right lung.with chemo scheduled to start March 20 . A scan on March 17 showed a mass on my ovaries. Chemo was cancelled and off to Halifax I went for another referrall . A complete hysterectomy was schedule for April 20 . After pathology it was determined I also had Ovarian cancer. Chemo was rescheduled for June . After chemo I was put on a maintenance pill ,which I will take for years to come. As of today, I am 14 months no evidence of disease for my lung cancer and 1 year no evidence of disease for my ovarian cancer. I am blessed each and every day. Not everyone has the same story.
Today, thousands of Canadian women's 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.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Every dollar I raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity that champions the health and well-being of women with ovarian cancer and others at risk of this disease. Funds will be used to fund vital research, spur advocacy efforts, and provide support so that we can help women with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better, longer lives.
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.
