Gramanama's Ovary Achievers: Family & Friends
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 we are participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada ‘Walk of Hope' in Ajax.
My mom is one of these women who was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in May of 2018. She battled this ruthless disease – bravely enduring 6 rounds of chemotherapy and a massive cancer debulking surgery to remove all cancer in her abdomen. She is currently in 'remission' with hopes it doesn't return at all or at least not anytime soon.
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, my grandmother and all my female friends and family are at risk for this devastating disease.
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 September 7th, 2019 in Ajax - register online as part of our team ‘Gramanama’s Ovary Achievers’. Together we can make a difference.
Last year we raised over $5000 as a team - let's do it again... or even better let's BEAT it like my mama did.
Please DONATE to us individually or to our TEAM: Gramanama's Ovary Achievers: Family & Friends - it doesn't matter who the donation is under - it all goes towards our team. Together we are walking to FIGHT this ruthless FIGHT.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Love, all the Ovary Achievers of Team Gramanama
