Dear Family and Friends-On March 22nd, my amazing mother, Margie Silverman, lost her courageous 3-year battle with ovarian cancer. I feel so blessed to have had her in my life for 46 years. She was a special person with a huge heart, wonderful sense of humor and infectious laugh. My mom's entire existence revolved around family. Being a wife, mother, grandma and mother-in-law gave her pure joy. And, nobody did it better.

In tribute to her, Eliza, David and I will be participating in the Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer on May 19th in Chicago along with my sister and her family.

We deeply believe in the mission of the NOCC to educate and create awareness of this insidious disease. It is a silent killer. The disease often progresses to late stage cancer before a person is symptomatic as was the case with my mother. 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.

This journey that our family has lived through is one that I would not wish upon anyone. Please support my mom and all other ovarian cancer patients, survivors and their families.

Thank you for your support.
Love,
Karen
