Thank you for stopping by my fundraising page!

On March 2nd 2018 I was stunned to find out my mother/best friend was diagnosed with stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. It was so hard to comprehend as after all she was the "healthy one" in the family...and stage 4!??! What.The.Fuck....
To say the weeks ahead were difficult is beyond an understatement. Our days were filled with alot of emotion and trying to learn everything we could about this new unwelcomed bombshell that was dropped on us. We finally landed at Dana Farber for treatment and feel so blessed to have this amazing world renowned hospital right in our back yard. Her treatment has been a long process but Mom has been amazing though it all and as we joke- truly "living her best life".
While her numbers keep heading in the right direction, our fight will never be over. This cancer is notorious for re occuring and I want to do everything in my power to stop it. I was excited to find out about the walk right here in Southie. Raising awareness and contributing to research funds are the key tools to not only finding a cure but early detection testing so you dont find out when you are already at a later stage like my Mom.

If you cant join our team and walk with us that day please donate any amount and support us!

Thank you all so much!
