Ovarian Cancer Walk on Saturday!

Posted September 10, 2010

I usually don't post fundraising stuff, but this is a cause near and dear to my heart so I am taking a little liberty here. I'll be walking in the Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer walk tomorrow (Saturday) to raise money for ovarian cancer research. As some of you know, my mom, Marian,  was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in November of 2006 and passed away in July of last year after the cancer had spread. This is our 4th year participating in this walk and raising funds for ovarian cancer research through Duke University and I am hopeful that one day there will not only be a better diagnostic tool but that there will be a cure!

If you are looking for a good cause to support - this is it! For more information on ovarian cancer and to support our team, Marian's Marchers,  click HERE.
