In Honor of my Lifelong Friend Sandy Cardy
Last July, I lost my best friend of 40 years to ovarian cancer. Despite the somber diagnosis of stage 3 cancer, Sandy managed to live 6 1/2 quality years with the disease. This achievement was accomplished through Sandy's relentless and extensive efforts in global cancer research and advancements, radical changes to her diet and a positive mental and physical life style. Continued research to advance in the treatment of ovarian cancer is essential to extend the lives of those living with the disease and to move toward an eventual cure. With your help, we can play a role in ensuring Sandy's legacy is one of hope and progress.
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.
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.
Together we can make a difference.
