September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, I’m doing a Walk in my sisters Name and You Can Help
As I have mentioned this past year, September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The whispering disease has affected out family in a big way, as some as you know, my sister Judy was diagnosed last year. She is fighting an amazing, very brave battle against the disease, and unfortunately the disease is the devil advancing even thru rounds and rounds of treatment. We feel your prayers and are very, very grateful. On September 26, 2009 my family, including many cousins, aunts and uncles, will be participating in Annual Avon/Monmouth County Walkathon. My sister may not be able to participate this event, but will be there in spirit and is grateful for any support anyone could give this deadly disease, whether financially or awareness. (This week I noticed teal colored ribbons on telephone poles in many NJ’s towns. Teal is the color of Ovarian Awareness)
