Together in Teal we are Doin' It For Doris

Dear Family and Friends,

Less than four months until the 21st Annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer!! This year’s event will be held on May 19th at Arlington Park Racetrack which was a great venue last year. The track is only ten minutes from my house and the run/walk registration fee includes general admission to stay for the day of racing which is a lot of fun!

Once again, I’m asking you to consider joining us to walk (or run) in Mom’s memory and in honor of all those you may know fighting ovarian cancer or others who we will remember that day. Last year our team raised over $2500 to support the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. The NOCC provides support to women and their families as well as tirelessly working on raising awareness and promoting education of this deadly disease. As a volunteer for NOCC, I continue to work on connections in the Central Illinois area and to raise awareness by meeting with doctors and their staff and attending Health and Wellness Fairs in those areas so that people are better educated, thereby increasing the numbers of women diagnosed at an earlier stage resulting in earlier and better treatment results. Going back to work has decreased the time I'm able to volunteer, but I am always “thinking teal” and I hope you will too. Can we raise more awareness and funds this year???

The link below will allow you to register if you’d like to join us for the Run/Walk.(It will take you to the main page for NOCC showing the events. Click on the Illinois event and then you'll go to another page where you'll choose "register" on the left.) We’d love for you to join us…we have extra beds, blow up mattresses if we need them, and a tent to pitch in the back yard if it gets really crowded!! If you’re unable to walk, but would like to continue to provide support, you can donate to NOCC. Here’s how:

1) Click this link to get to our team page. Click “donate” on the right side.
runwalk.ovarian.org/illinois/DoinItForDoris

2) If you aren’t comfortable using your debit or credit card online, feel free to send a check to me. It should be made payable to NOCC (do not make payable to Doin’ It For Doris). My address is 814 S. Robert Drive, Mount Prospect, IL 60056

3) You can give Dad your check or cash or your change jar (if you’ve continued filling it). If you give cash, please just jot down your name with it so he remembers to give it to me!

Whether you join us on May 19th to walk, send a donation, or say a prayer for us that day, please know that we are always thankful for your continued support to our family and NOCC. With your love, support, and prayers we will help Break the Silence!

Love and hugs,


Susan
