Hi, friends. The year 2020 marks five years since we lost Jean to ovarian cancer. In a year of uncertainty, one thing is for sure...we need to keep fighting to find a cure for cancer.
Please join Team Jean's efforts to support ovarian cancer research by participating or donating to the Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer Walk & 5K Run. This year the event will be virtual, which opens the door for so many ways to participate. You can walk or run anytime from any location September 11 - 25. On Saturday, September 26, there will be a Facebook Live event and car parade at Sanderson High to celebrate the culmination of the fundraiser.
I have an ambitious goal to raise $1,000 for Team Jean. Some of you knew Jean and are familiar with her amazing spirit, smile, and sense of humor. For those of you who didn't know her, trust me when I say she was good people.
Any amount, great or small, helps to raise money and awareness in our fight against ovarian cancer. Duke is making progress with new and better treatments and continuing their goal of finding an accurate screening test and with your help it will become a reality. I greatly appreciate any support that you can afford and will keep you posted on my progress.
Thank you for your generous support!
