Ovarian cancer walk of hope

Recommended Posts

Ovarian cancer walk of hope.

 

So, my mom died 4 years ago from Ovarian Cancer.  I trooped an Ovarian Cancer event 10 hours later, with a dozen other members who came out to support us, and make sure i didnt melt down.

 

There are three or 4 every year, always this time of year, and its always a good thing im wearing a bucket at them.

 

This year was at a local park my parents both loved, you can see the long line of people walking.  They passed us at the start, our hands got numb from the high fives we were given, hugs were received from survivors and supporters, the organizer asked for me by name, and it was still a good thing i was wearing a bucket.

 

According to the Charity Facebook group they raised 85 000 dollars in Ottawa, and 1.78 Million across Canada.  In perspective: Canada is 32ish million people, 2 800 women are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer each year (an sadly only in mid-advanced to advanced stages due to difficulty in detection), and only 2.1 % of funds donated to Cancer are directed to Ovarian Cancer research.
