Next fundraising event: Metabolic Meltdown workout class in Saratoga Springs NY on Sunday September 15th
In December of 2015, my mom Michele was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. She has no family history of ovarian cancer and is otherwise healthy and active, so this diagnosis came as a shock to all of us. There are no screening tests for ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, this often leads to a diagnosis at an advanced stage with a poor prognosis, as it was for my mom. This leads to an incredibly high fatality rate.
Fortunately, thanks in large part to her team at DFCI, and after extensive surgery and chemotherapy, my mom has been cancer-free for over 2 years. We are walking this year to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer research. Help us to find better screening methods so that we may be able to protect our mothers, sisters, daughters, and all the women in our lives from this devastating disease.
We would love for you to join our team - Michele's Ovary Achievers. Click the link above if you would like to walk with us on 9/22/19. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to contribute to our goal, any amount is greatly appreciated!
