Welcome to My Personal Page
My mom Bertha was diagnosed with ovarian cancer over four years ago. This disease has had huge impacts on her, our family, and our lives.
We have also recently learned that myself and many members of our family have the BRCA genetic mutation, greatly increasing our likelihoods of developing different types of cancer including ovarian cancer for the women.
By walking and raising money we can help efforts that will help my mom and all women living with ovarian cancer.
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 3,100 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 joining the thousands of other participants 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 give generously. Better yet, this year’s Walk will happen in communities large and small, all across Canada. It is a virtual event and you can join me! Together we can make a difference.
