I walk for Gayle and Joan!
I am participating in the Swedish SummeRun & Walk this year with my friend and ovarian cancer survivor Joan Hoshino. Joan's life was turned upside down when a short while after her battle, and survival, her sister, Gayle was diagnosed with the same type of ovarian cancer and passed away. This is the 5th year anniversary of Gayle's passing and it still brings tears to my eyes knowing what a fighter she was and how much she was loved by her family and friends. I walk in honor of my friend Joan and her sister Gayle!
Proceeds from the run and walk will support the life-saving work of the Rivkin Center. The Rivkin Center is a Seattle-based non-profit that has become a principle catalyst for national and international research efforts aimed at finding solutions to ovarian cancer.
Rivkin Center Mission & Vision
To improve women's health by helping them prevent, detect early, and survive ovarian and breast cancer. We envision a world where women live longer and healthier lives because cancers are prevent, caught early, or cured.
Since its establishment in 1996, the Rivkin Center has awarded over $11 million in research grants to scientific investigators around the world, and also supports ovarian and breast cancer education and high-risk early detection screening.
Here are two ways that you can help us get one step closer to a cure for ovarian cancer:
1. Walk with us and give hope to those undergoing treatment and help inspire the community into action.
2. Help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation. Click on the "DONATE NOW" button to the right to show your support!
I'd be so grateful if you would join or sponsor me. Together, we can end ovarian cancer.
