Welcome to My Personal Page
Ovarian Cancer is something that I had honestly never thought about before 2018. The summer of 2018 my mother, Anna Bradburn, was diagnosed with this terrible disease. Though she fought hard and with everything she had she sadly passed away one short year after being diagnosed. I have to come to learn that there is no early detection for this cancer and often, by the time it is diagnosed the disease has often progressed too far for treatments to be effective.
I will be walking on Sunday September 12 in her memory. To honour her life and all that she meant to me and so many others. I refuse to let her memory fade and this annual walk reminds many of us of her spirit and legacy. I would also like to encourage and stimulate funds for this often overlooked women's cancer so that we can find a cure and explore early detection methods. I asked mom the day before she passed how she would like me to honour her and she said to continue supporting Ovarian Cancer Canada so that other women who come after her may have a better chance to survive this disease. Even at the end she thought of others.
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.
