I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without Ovarian Cancer.
I walk in honor of my Aunt Chris who lost her battle to Ovarian Cancer over 10 years ago. A woman's lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer is 1 in 71 and the risk of dying from this disease is 1 in 95. OVARIAN CANCER BRIGADE has raised over $620K that has gone to The Dr. Ursula Matulonis Ovarian Cancer Research Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Matulonis is dedicated to research, early detection, quality of life and ultimately and ideally—a cure for ovarian cancer which if caught early enough is a highly treatable disease.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
