THE STORY:

For my second annual birthday fundraiser, I've selected the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (www.ovarian.org), whose mission is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors. 

My Aunt Mary (#44 in the picture from the Dr. Oz show) is a 6 year survivor of ovarian cancer. Referred to as the Silent Killer, ovarian cancer's symptoms are often very mild until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. Depending on the specific type of ovarian cancer, survival rates range from about 87-98% in Stage I to 17-69% in Stage IV.

According to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, approximately 1 in 72 women will develop invasive ovarian cancer in their lifetime. The risk of dying from invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 100. 

When you put these two facts together, you can see why it is so important to get the word out about ovarian cancer so that the women who do develop it are able to detect it as early as possible and maximize their chance of survival.

Every year we participate in NOCC's Annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer here on Long Island and this year will be no different. It is scheduled for September 27 at Belmont Lake State Park - just a couple weeks after my birthday, so good timing.

Help me raise $1,000 for a great cause!

And for anyone interested in attending the Run/Walk, check out their website for more info (http://nocc.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1108911)
