In June 2016, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. After surgery and chemotherapy I was in remission by December 2016. Unfortunately I had a recurrence in September 2017. I participated in a clinical trial until June 2018 and then had to begin standard of care chemotherapy again. I remain hopeful and positive and have put everything in God's hands. I have participated in Strides for Hope with my family since my diagnosis. This year we are walking in honor and memory of my sister Tammy and my mom Lorna who we sadly lost this year to other cancers. We are also walking for my daughter, other sister, nieces and all other women unteal there is a cure. I'd like to thank Dr. Rath and her staff at the Bing and Dr. Copeland and his staff at The James for all they have done for me. I'd also like to thank my husband, children and extended family for their constant love, prayers and support as we make this journey together.
