In 2015, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. It is now just over three years since I finished treatment and I am still ok. I would like to be able to say that for many more years. Research is essential to women who, like me, have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. There is no screening for early detection of ovarian cancer and, in my case, only part of my treatment was targeted to my specific type of 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 honor her means everything. That’s why our team is participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
The Walk celebrates the hope we carry with us every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support to women and families living with ovarian cancer, increase awareness of the disease, and fund vital research so that we can change the future for the women we love.
Please provide your support by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join us. Together we can make a difference.
Get ready to Walk in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope is the largest and most powerful event of its kind in the country. Register today and take action so that women can live fuller, better, longer lives.
