Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year.
This spring I faced my own diagnosis, turning our family’s life upside down. Surrounded by a loving and supporting network of family and friends - my army - I started this team to bring awareness, to give back and to find purpose in this journey I’ve started. You can check out my personal page for my own story.
That’s why our team is participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. And it seems fitting that it occurs just before I start my own treatment. The Walk celebrates the hope we carry with us every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Every dollar I 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.
