Welcome to My Personal Page
Paul McCartney once said he wrote the song Blackbird in order to give people hope. This was a favourite song of Laurie’s because she believed in hope. With such sadness, we lost our beautiful Laurie to this terrible disease a year ago.
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year alone.
I am joining Laurie’s daughter’s team, Laurie Benson’s Blackbirds in Edmonton this year hoping to help them surpass their fundraising amount of $5601 last year.
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 generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join me. Together we can make a difference.
