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 our team is participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
We lost our dear friend Ashley to Ovarian Cancer this past March. This disease is something that she was not quiet about. Through her platform of Elly Mayday, hundreds of thousands of people heard her message. We will continue to advocate on her behalf.
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 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 change the future and help women live fuller, better, longer lives.
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.
