I am participating in the Journey to Conquer Cancer event which will be held on June 18th, in support of the Elana Waldman Ovarian Cancer Research Program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I am raising research dollars - so that with your help, we can reach our ultimate goal - To conquer ovarian cancer!
June 4, 2013 is a day I will never forget. It is the day my mother lost her long battle to ovarian cancer. Anyone who knew my mom knows she was an inspiration. She fought hard for close to 8 yrs to be with me and my dad and to watch me grow. I don't want any kids to have to go through what I did. It was hard and it was sad! Ovarian cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths for women and most of the time it kills.
I am going to run 5 kms this year instead of walking. Last year I was the 2nd highest fundraiser with over $41,000 raised to Conquer Cancer. Please help me to do even better this year.
If you click DONATE NOW (beside the photo), you will help us towards our ultimate goal of $3 million for the Elana Waldman Ovarian Cancer Research Program. To date over $550,000 has been raised. Every dollar counts so please give generously.
Maybe you would like to join me - you can join me, start your own team or come on your own or with friends. It's going to be a lot of fun! Register Now
With your help, I will reach my fundraising goal and together we will have done something great. We will keep my mom's memory alive and carry on her important work.
