Welcome to Jen's fundraising page for the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope
In 2020, I was one of approximately 3,100 individuals diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Canada. Another 3,100 people will receive this same unexpected news by the time 2021 winds down. As the old Breck shampoo commercial used to say, "and so on and so on and so on...."
Each of us is part of an extended family who loves us. For many, our cancer diagnosis was just as devastating to our parents, siblings, children, relatives, friends and colleagues as it was to us.
I am pleased to join the thousands of participants who will take part in this year's Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. Some are ovarian cancer survivors like me; others are the friends and family of people who have faced the disease. For all participants and supporters, the Walk represents hope for a future without this disease.
Ovarian Cancer Canada is the only national charity that champions the health and well-being of women with ovarian cancer and others at risk of this disease. The more than $30 million raised to date has gone toward funding vital research, spurring advocacy efforts, and providing support so that Ovarian Cancer Canada can help women with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better and longer lives.
I hope that you will consider donating to my fundraising effort, particularly if I have helped you through my blog, Jenesis (https://jenesis.postach.io/), in which I have chronicled my journey with ovarian cancer. A donation of any size is appreciated.
