My Chicago Marathon - Team Teal Fundraising Page

Kara Sisti

BOA Team Teal

Welcome to my Fundraising page for Team Teal!!
Together we are taking a stand to create National Awareness and fund programs designed to support women and their families affected by Ovarian Cancer.
This year I was selected in the lottery for BOA Chicago Marathon and running for my mom and others like her who have been affected by this horrible disease.
Unfortunately there are currently no early detection testing for this type of cancer only awareness. My mom was having symptoms of bloating and pelvic pain but since this type of cancer is very vague and non specific the doctors had thought she had a digestive issue. It wasn’t until she went to the gynecologist and they performed a ultrasound and blood work with
Ca 125 to confirm her diagnosis, it was Ovarian Cancer.
Since this type cancer whispers and symptoms are silent my mom and others like her have lived with this for months possibly years leading up to their diagnoses.
My hope is that I can spread awareness and let others know the symptoms since early detection is so crucial in saving lives.
Please consider helping me support the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's great cause!
Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.
Together, we can make a difference! Thank you!
