Welcome to The Beagle Walk of Hope
Several years ago, I created an Instagram account @lilycopperbeagle for our beagles. Lily, Copper, and Brody are 3 rescue dogs from @beaglepawsnl who are always into mischief but cute as the day is long!
While the account was just for fun, I had not expected to become part of a virtual community of support, invited into the lives of other animal lovers and wonderful, compassionate people around the world. Most importantly, we were honoured to join with new friends in raising funds to try to change our world, sometimes one small life at a time but in most cases, watching individual donations mount up to thousands of dollars to support our causes.
Until now, I have not disclosed publicly through the Instagram account what we experienced with my partner’s diagnosis of ovarian cancer just before Christmas 2018. Now two years post-chemo, we want to include our friends in our story to promote ovarian cancer research and program funding, as well as education for women and families about this insidious cancer and the desperate need to advance early detection strategies. As Ovarian Cancer Canada points out, many people want to support important causes like this — they are just waiting to be asked.
So if you have read this far, I thank you — we thank you! And hope that you will donate, spread the word, and ask others to join our mission.
Ruth and Copper, Lily, Brody ... & Reese too!
