I’ve made the move to join the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition to come Together in Teal™ at the 2018 Massachusetts Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer

As most of you are aware, on March 2nd my best friend Erin's mother Janet was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.

Since I was 11, Erin and her family have been such a big part of my life. I consider Janet to be a second mother. They refer to me as the third daughter. When I got this news I was shocked and terrified. But I did what any friend would do, and I hid my fears and was just there for my best friend and her family in any way I could.

Janet went on to receive the best treatment from Dana Farber, and she has continued to show improvement - but if you know anything about this disease you know you will always be fighting it off and it is notorious for reoccurring.

I would love for you join me to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer by making a contribution to my personal fundraising goal. Through your generosity, we can make a difference for the women, family members, and loved ones affected by this disease.

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. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in later stages, when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90%.

This is why it is imperative that the early signs and symptoms of the disease are recognized, not only by women but by their families and the healthcare community.

Your gracious donation will help spread awareness across the country through local and national programs, critical research, and educational materials that arm women diagnosed with ovarian cancer with important information, resources, and a community with whom they can share their journey.
