Team Barbara

Hello Friends,
September is around the corner, which is always a month of reflection. The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition walk in Boston is coming up on Sunday, September 8th in South Boston. This year marks the 13th anniversary of my mother's passing. We all continue to honor her memory and spirit and I am forever grateful for the support and love from all of my friends and my Boston "family."

Team Barbara in Boston comes together every year to honor my mother, support all of those with cancer (and their families), and raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer. This year, I walk again in honor of my mother and also in memory of Pat and Mike Svirsky who were long-time Team Barbara members. Their caring spirit will be with us as we walk on the 8th. If you're in town and want to join us in South Boston, new and veteran walkers are always welcome :) Bring and friend and let's walk!

This walk supports the NOCC's mission to continue to spread awareness for ovarian cancer and to fund the important research so better tests and a cure can be found. There are new genetic tests that were not available for my mom. We have to hope science continues to make progress to find a cure for this disease.

Thank you for all of your support. You can go to my team webpage or and look for Team Barbara.

As always with thanks and appreciation,
