In Cathie's Honour
Cathie Hong-Louie never gave up hope. She encouraged and continues to motivate us. So we invite you to join family and friends to formally honour Cath at The Walk for Her. The Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
Over the past three years more than 100 people have participated “In Cathie’s Honour” in walks in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto, raising awareness and over $21,000. The event has proven to be very meaningful for all.
Ovarian cancer is the most fatal women's cancer.
In Canada, every 3 hours a woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Every 5 hours we lose a woman to the disease. More than half the women diagnosed do not live to see another five years. These survival rates haven't improved in 50 years because shortfalls in research funding are stalling scientific progress against this disease.
Cathie fought ovarian cancer with stoic and staggering bravery for almost a year. In November of 2015, at 57, ovarian cancer took her life.
