Melanie's Marauding NOvarian Mob
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 I’m participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
The Walk celebrates strength and hope. It recognizes the tremendous physical and emotional strength of those who have fought this disease, and it reflects hope for ongoing improvements in detection and treatment for ovarian cancer. I live with an ovarian cancer survivor, so I have seen first hand that strength and determination it requires. These women are doing their part to fight back, so we need to do ours, by helping them with awareness and funding.
This year’s goal is to raise $2.1 million in Canada, including $150,000.00 in Calgary. Our team, Melanie's Marauding NOvarian Mob, is shooting to raise 10% of the Calgary total. 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, increase awareness, 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 in Calgary, or any of the other dozen or so cities across Canada hosting the walk. Together we can make a difference.
