Welcome to Team Nicole Yeatman

Why do I run/walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer? It has been 10 years since the love of my life Nicole was diagnosed with Stage 3-C ovarian cancer. I remember the day we sat in our beloved Dr Krebs office as he explained that Nicole had ovarian cancer and she asked about her prognosis. He said, “statistically the survival rate is 3 to 5 years.” Nicole heard 3, I heard 5, and Nicole survived another 6 ½ years. Early detection and diagnosis is the key to survival but unfortunately the symptoms are vague and there is no guaranteed test to diagnose this hideous disease.

This year marks the 4th year since Nicole’s passing after 48 years of an epic marriage. She fought the good fight but we knew the numbers were not on her side. I miss her dearly and I pray each day that other women will listen to their bodies and seek out the answers to strange conditions that just don’t go away. Ovarian Cancer is known as the silent killer of women for a reason, it is hard to diagnose.

My prayers are for ALL women, young and old to enjoy their wonderful health and that through research, science will lead us to a CURE.

THIS IS WHY I RUN/WALK TO BREAK THE SILENCE ON OVARIAN CANCER.

Please join me by donating to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition this year.

With thanks and LOVE,

John
