Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get!

As many of you know I am a cancer survivor. Two years ago I felt a lump in my side and went to the doctor, never thinking it could be cancer. When I was told it could be I was sure they were wrong. I thought there is no way - I’m healthy, I eat well, I’m active, I’m young – no way…

A week later I was diagnosed with Stage 1C Ovarian Cancer.

The fact that I went to the doctor right away saved my life. Only 20% of all cases are found at Stage 1 or II. The five year survival rate is over 90% at that stage! If diagnosed later the survival rate drops to as low as 28%.

The point of sharing my story is to remind everyone to know your body, follow through with all your pesky doctor appointments, and be your own advocate. If it doesn’t feel right it’s not. Insist on being seen.

I’ll be walking the 20th Annual Philadelphia Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer. The walk helps raise money for ovarian cancer research. Please help me reach my goal by donating something. Every little bit helps.

Thank you all so much!

As of June 2018 I am TWO YEARS cancer free!

Together we can make a difference! Best - Michelle
