And those 4 women? That’s how many women ovarian cancer kills every day in Canada. I won’t be one of them this year, thanks to research which developed Taxol as an effective chemotherapy for many women. But that was back in the 1950’s. There’s a lot more to discover about this most fatal women’s cancer and that’s what the Walk of Hope is all about.
This family-friendly event raises vital funds to provide support, raise awareness and fund much-needed research into prevention, improved treatments and ultimately, a cure. Join me in the Walk of Hope on Sunday, September 13 in Vancouver.
Thank you to the many people who contributed more than $2,000 to the Walk of Hope campaign through me. Every donation from $10 to $250 has helped our Team Dwyer, named for my friend Shelagh, to raise a total of $8,960. We’d like to hit $10,000 before Sunday’s walk.
If you can, please contribute. It’s easy — just cllck on the link below my name at the end of this post. Look for the DONATE NOW button on the upper right of the page.
Thank you for your interest and for learning about ovarian cancer during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
