Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 3,100 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 joining the thousands of other participants 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 give generously. Better yet, this year’s Walk will happen in communities large and small, all across Canada. It is a virtual event and you can join me! Together we can make a difference.
In addition to the Walk of Hope, starting May 8th (World Ovarian Cancer Day) until September 12th, my amazing friends Dillon and Launne Kolla (in honour of their late mother Lorette Kolla - Team “Love for Lorette”) will be putting our love for spinning to good use. We have committed to biking 3,100 kms, 1 km for every Canadian woman diagnosed this year, with a goal of raising $3,100. Thank you for your support!
