Welcome to My Personal Page
In 2010, my husband, Carl Walker lost his battle from pancreatic cancer but I continue his FIGHT by raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers where more than 92% of patients will die of this disease with in 3 to 6 months of diagnoses.
However, immunotherapies, which harness the body own immune system to attack cancer, are offering new hope. Dr. Carolina Ilkow and her lab are investigating using oncolytic virus vaccines and other immune-boosting therapies to treat pancreatic cancer.
I will be running to raise awareness for pancretic cancer research and funds to purchase a new Fluorescent Microscope for Dr. Ilkow’s research team to track how cancer cells or patient-derived tumour tissues get infected with oncolytic viruses upon treatment.
Please consider donating to help purchased the Fluorescent Microspcope for Dr. Ilkow's lab which is needed to to continue the lab's research in giving pancreatic cancer patients HOPE to win their battle.
"One Person Can make a Difference; A Team Can Make an Impact!"
You can help us make that impact with your donation.
