Please consider supporting our event and help us save women's lives!!!

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.

Hi Supporters,

With 13 days to go until this Silent No More 5k for Ovarian Cancer I want want to update you on the success of this year's team, Notorious O.V.A.R.Y!

After only starting fundraising efforts a few weeks ago, your generosity has contributed to a personal $1650 to date and overall $15, 591 (and growing!) for the organization as a whole. 

The vision of the newly formed Rhode Island Ovarian Cancer Alliance is to be visible in the community to

  • Provide education and outreach. Had I known the symptoms, perhaps I could have advocated for myself sooner.
  • Expand services to women and families (ex: rides to treatment for those that don't have transportation)
  • Contribute to a (too) slowly growing body of research that will in future lead to life-saving early detection tools and maybe even a cure! 
  • Create a strong emotional network for women and families in Rhode Island touched by this illness 

For all of the exciting reasons above, this is why I choose to walk for RIOCA and want to thank you again for supporting these initiatives through your money, time and thoughtfulness.

Thank you again for making a difference :)
