Viv's Ovary Achievers Team
Hello Family & Friends!
Once again this year my goal is to participate in the annual Walk of Hope!
These past two years both the participation as well as the funds we raised together.... a whopping total of $62,591.99 .... has blown me away!!! Our team picture from 2018 shows what an AWESOME team we have!!!! Let's repeat it this year!!!
The Walk of Hope assists women who have been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.
Four years ago my world came crashing down when this beast entered it. Lots of Love & support, a great medical team and by the grace of God I am still here and determined to make the best of everyday!! Unfortunately the statistics say that my lifespam is 5 years from diagnosis...I am set to prove this statistic wrong!
Many women prior to myself have participated in clinical trials, studies etc...that have allowed the medical profession to advance their research and knowledge. This is one of the deadliest forms of cancer and the most silent one, many are not diagnosed until they are at a very advanced stage like myself. In the past 50 years there has not been much advancement in forms of medication, diagnosis nor extending life span. Together as we raise more funds and push the government to allocate more funds towards Ovarian Cancer research we can make advancements.
Please join me on September 8, 2019 to either walk with me or to donate ANY amount. Every dollar counts.
Together Help Me Help Others!!! We NEED to CONQUER this BEAST!!!!
As last year my enticement for you to participate is that we will be coordinating a BBQ after the walk at our place. Details will be sent as we approach the date.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
