The K Team

Thank you for supporting this Walk Team in memory of my beautiful sister Karen Linn Martin, who passed away from ovarian cancer on February 10, 2022. I am grateful for the generosity and kindness of our family and friends who have already shown support for Karen through her memorial page and for contributing to the momentum of research and awareness for this disease.


Karen was not the type of person to fund raise for this disease, but she did fight for her life and access everything possible to treat it. We both agreed that there is not enough public understanding and attention as well as available treatment YET to prolong life and fight the spread and recurrence of this cancer. 


Every dollar raised supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the Canadian charity championing the health and wellbeing of women with ovarian cancer and those at risk for the disease, while advancing research to save lives.


Your donation will:

  • Fuel progress in scientific discovery
  • Strengthen advocacy for improved care, and
  • Provide vital supports for the 3,100 women in Canada who will be diagnosed this year.


Perhaps most importantly, you’ll prevent ovarian cancer before it starts by providing women and family doctors with life-saving self-advocacy information.



Karen would be pleased to know that her fight was not in vain. Thank you and thank you to this amazing organization that continues Karen's fight. Live your life to the fullest and look after your health!
