Welcome to Alicia Tran's Fundraising Page for Professor Gainer
Hello friends and family!
On September 12, 2021, my dental hygiene classmates and I will be fundraising for Ovarian Cancer Canada.
“Team 4 Fighters” is a group of University of Alberta dental hygiene students and faculty walking in honour of Professor Patricia (Patty) Gainer. Professor Gainer was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Mar 2020 and passed on Nov 1, 2020. As our Team 4 Clinical Team lead, she held a very special place in all of our hearts. She spent many hours teaching us how to be strong, knowledgeable, compassionate dental hygienists and people. She has inspired us to fight for a brighter future for cancer fighters everywhere.
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year. 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.
Thank you so much in advance for a cause very dear to us!
