Donna Strating Memorial Fund
This fundraiser is dedicated to Donna - grandmother, mother, wife, sister, friend - who was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in the summer of 2014. Over three and half years, she defied all odds and expecations of doctors in Canada and at the Mayo Clinic, but sadly lost her battle with overian cancer in December 2017. Her strength and optimism during this time was a beacon of hope for her family and friends. We hope her story will inspire those currently fighting ovarian cancer and others to donate to the cause.
In Canada today, there are 17,000 women living with ovarian cancer. Each of these women is central to a family, every one of these women have people who love her. Every dollar my event raises 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.
