In March 2019 my life completely changed when I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. That spring and fall I went through chemotherapy treatments and surgery. In March 2020 the cancer reoccurred and I went through chemo again. In August, I will be starting chemo for the third time. It’s an ongoing journey with lots of ups and downs but life is good . I am grateful for the treatments that I have been able to receive and I hope that one day there will be a cure. Thank you to my family and friends who have supported me through this journey, especially my husband Dan.
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. Together we can make a difference.
