Dear family and friends,
This past January, I committed to raising $3,500 for Team TEAL’s New York City Marathon team. The marathon won't go on as planned; however, I'm committed to raising the $3,500 that I promised the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, and on running the NYC marathon remotely on November 15th! I’m excited about supporting an organization that does so much for so many women and families. I’ll be running for my mom and in support of all other women and families who have been affected by gynecological cancers.
Ovarian cancer is the deadliest cancer among women and is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, yet there is still no way to screen for ovarian cancer in women who do not experience symptoms. The NOCC is committed to funding research in addition to helping affected families access the resources they need to stay afloat both economically and emotionally after a diagnosis.
I’m so grateful for the support of family and friends—please know that every dollar makes a huge difference!
