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. As you know, in June 2019, I lost my friend and colleague, Kim after a short, but courageous battle. Kim taught me a whole lot about a million different things, but most importantly, she taught me how to have strength when faced with challenges, and that for the most part, our everyday challenges, are not big problems. This past year + has definitely tested us all, but I have thought of her often, felt her strength and encouragement and pushed through even when it was hard, because that’s what Kim would have done. Although the walk will be virtual again this year, I am doing this for her. I am walking for her. I am celebrating and honouring her.
Please give what you are able. You can be sure that every dollar will help change lives affected by ovarian cancer through research, advocacy, and support.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Together we can make a difference.
