Welcome to Team Frantastic
Today, thousands of Canadians are living with ovarian cancer and another 3,100 will be diagnosed this year. Unfortunately in 2016, one of those Canadians was my mom, Frances Edwards. I was lucky to get to share another three years with her before she succumbed to the disease on December 15, 2019. Before she passed away, she asked me to continue to do this walk in her memory. By walking in my mom's honour, my team is showing support for these individuals and their families and raising money to keep the hope alive for a better future where ovarian cancer is better understood and becomes preventable, if not curable.
Every dollar raised supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity that champions the health and well-being of individuals 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 individuals with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better, longer lives.
