THE STORY:

On Wednesday March 16th, Stacy Kirkpatrick died of ovarian cancer peacefully at her home surrounded by her wife and close friends. She may have passed form this earth peacefully, but she did not live that way. She was a warrior…and she fought for her life with amazing strength, courage and resolve. I could not begin to summarize Stacy’s life in a few paragraphs, she was a healer, an advocate,  and what most people strive all their lives to be…a truly good human being. 

 

It can not be an accepted thing that ovarian cancer can take Stacy and millions of other women from us without putting up a fight. On Sunday November 6th, I will run the TCS New York City Marathon to honor the memory of Stacy and raise money in the struggle to prevent and cure ovarian cancer. 

 

Thank you! 

 

The mission of the the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors.  For 25 years, the NOCC has been committed to raising awareness, promoting education and funding research in support of women, families and communities touched by ovarian cancer. 

More than 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 15,000 women die annually from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in their later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, the five-year survival rate is over 90%. Through national programs and local Chapter initiatives, the NOCC's goal is to make more people aware of the early symptoms of ovarian cancer so that we can make progress in improving ovarian cancer mortality rates.

In addition, the NOCC provides information to assist the newly diagnosed patient, to provide hope to survivors, and to support caregivers. The NOCC also supports and funds critical, cutting-edge ovarian cancer research.​

The New York City NOCC Chapter, founded in 2014, is part of a strong network of Tri-State Chapters, which are all working hard to advance the NOCC's mission in our local communities. Our NYC Team Teal will run 26.2 miles on November 6, 2016, and we hope you will consider supporting our runners. All proceeds raised through the TCS New York City Marathon will help us continue to expand the NOCC's programs and provide vital research funding.
