Background Story:
In the beginning of August, after spending a day swimming in the oceans of Nantucket, my mom went to the hospital with pain in her lower abdomen. Due to conflicting reports on scans, the decision was made for her to undergo surgery at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to determine what exactly was going on. The surgeons found her left ovary to be twisted, which was the cause of her pain. They noted that this ovary likely twisted when she was bodysurfing in Nantucket. However, while they were operating, they found cancer on her right ovary. Although this diagnosis of ovarian cancer has not be easy, we feel fortunate that it was detected early.

Our Goal:
As my mom healed from surgery, we began preparing her, and ourselves, for her next battle: chemotherapy. As we looked for ways to prepare, we came across this walk in Boston that raises money for ovarian cancer research. We thought it was a great opportunity to bring our friends and family together to help rally behind my mom and others affected by this disease. We thank you in advance for your support. Words cannot express our gratitude to all of you for your support throughout this journey.
