Welcome to David's Personal Page in Lorie's memory
On Sunday September 12th, 2021, I am walking for all women and families affected by ovarian cancer. Help make a much-needed difference by donating to the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope or joining me, virtually, from your own community.
As you likely know, I lost my Lorie on March 1 of this year to this devastating disease. On the last actual walk, she was so proud to participate, and as a team, Lorie's Ladies, we raised about $6,000. My Lorie also won a trophy for the most and liveliest participants, which I still have and cherish. This year I would like to hit $8,000.
Is it a coincidence that the walk is exactly on Lorie’s birthday, September 12?
Please contribute what you are comfortable with, in memory of Lorie.
This year in Canada 3,100 women will be diagnosed with this disease and half will not survive past five years. Every contribution will help Ovarian Cancer Canada change lives affected by ovarian cancer through research, advocacy, and support.
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.
