Please join me and the Rhode Island Ovarian Cancer Alliance to walk/run to raise awareness about Ovarian Cancer. The survivors will be celebrated while we remember those who lost their fight to the disease. All the proceeds will help fund Ovarian Cancer Education and Awareness as well as providing support services to survivors and their families.
My battle is a battle that is still being fought. I certainly would not be able to fight without the support and help from all my friends and family. As a cancer survivor- I know that the caretakers really are the most amazing and generous people. They provide the best encouragement one could ask for.
I fight continously to be able to spend more time with my 3 year old son- Connor and my amazing husband Mike. As I approach my 10 year mark, I ask for the love and support of my friends and family yet again to attend this years walk/run.
Join us Sunday, September 18, 2016 at Roger Williams Park in Providence (Temple of Music).
All activities open at 8:00am
Opening ceremonies at 9:30am

More than 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 15,000 women die from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in their later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent. That is why it is imperative that the early signs and symptoms of the disease are recognized, not only by women, but also by their families and the medical community.
There is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer, which is why it is imperative that the early signs of the disease are recognized, not only by women, but also by their families and the medical community. Until there is a test, the key to early diagnosis is through awareness—which this event helps us share with the entire community.
