A couple years ago, my aunt/Godmother was diagnosed with cancer. Today she is heroically continuing to fight the terrible disease. She has been taking new groundbreaking drugs that attempt to cut blood supply to the cancer cells. Her determination to fight the cancer and to promote groundbreaking cancer research is inspiring. She has been a big inspiration for me to start this blog, and I want to help spread her good work in supporting cancer research.
My aunt will be taking part in the Ovarian Cancer Race For Awareness - "A Teal Ribbon Event" - on June 5th. The Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) is sponsoring the walk. Money raised will support their work. My aunt attends one of their support groups and describes these groups as excellent. She will be getting COCA's training so that she can teach medical students about ovarian cancer. She points out that although ovarian cancer is typically diagnosed at later stages, ovarian cancer is very treatable if caught early. For this reason education and awareness on this issue are so important. In order to support my aunt Mary, you can easily make a tax-deductible donation by visiting her Firstgiving page: http://www.firstgiving.com/teamiyengar. You can donate online with a credit card. All donations are secure and sent directly to COLORADO OVARIAN CANCER ALLIANCE by Firstgiving, who will email you a printable record of your donation.
Thank you for supporting my aunt Mary and the very important mission of cancer research. God bless!
