My personal story..
In 2014, my jijii (grandmother) was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. While any diagnosis is scary, traumatizing even, this one flipped our world upside down. Having realized the severity of the situation, I struggled to cope with the helplessness our family felt. My jijii battled her diagnosis for 16 long months before we, and our amazing team of doctors exhausted all of our options. Since her passing, I've been learning to cope with the process of grieving, as well as grappling with how we lost her. Part of my process has been sharing her story in hopes to generate awareness about Ovarian Cancer.
By participating and fundraising for the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope, I’m hoping to further my advocacy efforts. To fundraise for vital research that will save lives, ensuring educational resources and support programs are available for those who need it, and fueling advocacy efforts because everyone deserves to live life to the fullest, because even in my Jijii's final weeks and days, we made every effort to ensure her quality of life.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity dedicated to overcoming this disease.
The next big breakthrough in ovarian cancer is around the corner. Please donate to my Walk now or sign up to join me. Together, we can improve outcomes – for good.
Thank you for your support. It means the world to me, and everyone affected by this disease.
