Welcome to My Personal Page
My cancer journey began in May 2011. Like most women affected by ovarian cancer, I experienced no noticable symptoms. At the age of 39 and the monther of 2 children, I was involved in an accident and broke my hip. An MRI of my hip revealed a tumor on my left ovary. That discovery lead to a lab test (CA125) that established my diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer. I became that 1 woman in the statistic of 1 in 71 women who are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.
Scared and feeling very alone, I began searching for more information and support. Thankfully, I found the SC Ovarian Cancer Foindation. It was through the SCOCF that I received encouragement, hope, and opportunities to give back through fundraising events like the Upstate Dragon Boat Festival.
Please join me in supporting cancer patients through the 13th annual Dragon Boat Festival by joining a team or simply donating. By doing so, you will be supporting cancer research and survivorship programs in our community. So many of us have been touched by cancer in some way and this event provides a way for us to honor and remember loved ones that have fought or continue to fight cancer. Make a donation and make a difference.
