BARB FIGHTS BACK
Over the past 4 years, Barb FIGHTS BACK! with the help of our wonderful family, friends and colleagues has raised over $50,000 for Ovarian Cancer Canada's relentless mission to raise awareness and find ways of conquering this nasty disease: the most fatal of women's cancers. This year, the team is determined to top the results of the last four Walks. As Barbara continues with her own personal fight against ovarian cancer (and happily is still in remission at the moment), will you help with her passion about raising awareness?
We've had a great year at OCC! Our awareness...LADYBALLS.......and government relations efforts continue in very energetic ways, and we are at present engaged in a very intensive strategic planning process, aimed at making sure we are truly optimizing and maximizing our efforts. but we do still need your help!
In Canada today, there are 17,000 women living with ovarian cancer. 2800 more are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year. Each of these women is central to a family, every one of these women have people who love her. This year, I am once again walking for HER, my beloved Barbara.
i am now about to finish my term as the Chair of OCC's national Board. I have had the honour to lead a highly committed Board, and we are supported by the inspiring Elisabeth Baugh and her amazing team. But we really need your support!
Can I count on you to help us? Please support my Walk by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge on September 10, please consider joining us for the Walk in Burlington. Together we can make a difference!
