Welcome to the Werner’s Warriors team page! So excited for you to be a part of the virtual run/walk and help me support the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition! Please don’t hesitate to share this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's great cause and we’ll get some exercise in, too!
My name is Samantha Werner and I’m 52-years old. My journey started in February of this year when I felt a lump in my neck and was having a hard time sleeping and turning my head. A node dissection of that lump lead a diagnosis of stage IV high grade metastatic ovarian cancer. I also tested positive for the BRCA1 mutation.
Five 6-hour sessions of chemo and a debulking surgery (still recovering from that) and I’m happy to report that there is currently no evidence of disease. I’m committed to raising awareness and raising funds to support research (there is currently no reliable screening test) and I’m grateful for your support!
Together, we can make a difference!
