I write the same message, here, every year … but I am too weak and scared to invite anyone to read it, donate, or join my team. So, I will keep it short this time.
I usually write more about the importance of fundraising because testing for ovarian cancer, even in the early stages, is not completely safe, efficient, or effective. I want a cure. I am so mad there is not a cure. We need to find a cure. But I am just too exhausted to keep preaching to the choir the importance of finding not only a cure, but even just a safe and effective way to test for the damn disease!
I am participating in this event for my mom, because it is one of the few things that I feel I actually do for her. I lost my mom almost 27 years ago. I was 4 years old. I have 2 memories of her that I know I haven't imagined into existence; the remaining 2-3 memories may simply be figments of my own mind. I hate ovarian cancer more than I could hate anything in this world. I know there are many illnesses out there, but I must be selfish. Ovarian cancer has caused so much destruction in my life and the lives of my family members. Please, let's end this dreadful abomination.
That's all I have.
