Please consider joining our team - Wendy's Warriors - as we walk in memory of our beautiful mom/wife/grandma/sister/aunt/friend!
In the fall of 2016 Wendy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. With grace, she underwent extensive surgery and months of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, in the fall of 2018, the cancer made its way back. This time Wendy was offered the opportunity to be a part of a clinical trial which allowed her to live chemo free and with a great quality of life for nearly 9 months. It is because of fundraising efforts like the ovarian cancer walk of hope that this was even a possibility. Unfortunately, chemotherapy became a reality again and this time the cancer would not abate. Our dear Wendy passed in March 2020.
Wendy found the walk empowering and so positive. We will continue our tradition of walking in the ovarian cancer walk of hope in memory of her.
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 honor her means everything. That’s why our team is participating with thousands of others at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
The Walk celebrates the hope we carry with us every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support, increase awareness, and fund vital research so that we can change the future for the women we love.
Please provide your support by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join us. Together we can make a difference.
