As you probably know, I was diagnosed with stage IIIb ovarian cancer in May 2019 after many months of ER and doctors' visits. Ovarian cancer is almost always diagnosed in late stages because of its vague symptoms of bloating and digestive issues (and sometimes blood clots) and no early detection test.

More than 22,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and over 14,000 women die from the disease. When cases are diagnosed in later stages, the prognosis is frighteningly poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent.

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's (NOCC) mission is to raise awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer to promote earlier detection, provide information and support to patients, survivors and caregivers, and support the advancement of ovarian cancer research.

Join me and my team, the Teal Magnolias, on race day (or be a virtual walker) and help me support NOCC by making a contribution to my fundraiser. Please also share this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance NOCC's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.

Together, we can make a difference!
