Help keep the legacy of Laurie alive!
This June we lost our beautiful friend Laurie to Ovarian Cancer. She fought with so much strength and hope. We were right there with her through every step of her journey, just as she will be there with us for every step of this Walk! The song ‘Blackbird’ by Paul McCartney signifies hope and the blackbird became our symbol of hope. Laurie’s daughters even have blackbird tattoos in honour of their Mom.
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 I’m participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me 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 help women with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better, longer lives.
Please provide your support by giving a donation or by joining our team as one of Laurie Benson’s Blackbirds. Together we can make a difference.
