It's been a few years, but the Borellins are once again walking in my mom's honor on September 9th! We invite you (yes any of you) to join our team Carol's Kooks, or make a donation to our team if you feel so inclined or just root us on behind the scenes.

My mom died at 69 of ovarian cancer. It was only 9 months from her diagnosis to her death. The author Amy Krouse Rosenthal died way too young as well from this horrible disease. The tough part about ovarian cancer is that it's rarely caught in the early stages...only about 20 percent of the time because the symptoms, which include bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain; feeling full quickly; and having to urinate urgently or often are similar to many other more common ailments. If you are a woman and you have any of these symptoms for more than 2 weeks, even if you think you are overreacting, get checked.

Proceeds from the Run/Walk are used to fund research, raise awareness & promote education about ovarian cancer.

That's it for my PSA. Thanks for reading and be well.
