Welcome to My Personal Page
I was diagnosed with Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer in 2020 and my life pivoted and changed in a way that I had never expected – or imagined. I drew in all the strength and courage I didn’t know I had and got through difficult medical procedures and treatments. In a very strange way, the harder part was telling those closest to me: my husband, my children, close family and friends, of my condition and having them go through the shock, worry and hardship that this disease brings along with it.
Thousands of Canadians are living with ovarian cancer and approximately 3,000 will be diagnosed this year alone. Today, I’m participating and fundraising for the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope, to make ovarian cancer a priority. I'm helping to fund crucial research that will save lives, ensuring educational resources and support programs are available for those who need it, as well as promoting advocacy efforts. Every dollar I raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada - the only national charity dedicated to overcoming this disease.
I’m participating in the Walk today so that my daughter, other members of my family, and so many other women in all our communities, do not have to tell their family and friends what I had to.
