Team Amy 1994-2020
This years Walk of Hope for 2021 will be virtual but Team Amy will be walking on Sunday, September 12th @ 10am in Chilliwack at the Townsend Park where we can do a few laps together and wear some teal for Ovarian Cancer Awareness. Thank you to everyone who joined the team, donated and will walk for Amy this year.
Amy Brooks grew up in a small town in Southern Ontario called Delhi. Amy was a friend to so many, her kind heart and laugh is known through the town. In 2017 at the age of 22 Amy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She fought hard and did everything she could with the support of her loved ones. Amy lived a full life and even went sky diving. She had a brave soul. On April 4 2020 our sweet Amy passed away and left us with all our special memories.
This walk is to support Amy and others who are battling ovarian cancer. Let’s do what we can, spread awareness, participate in this walk and donate for research.
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 generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join me. Together we can make a difference.
