Seeds of Hope: Research grant awarded to McGill scientist, Walk participants band together, what to do this September, and more
Much remains to be discovered when it comes to high-grade serous ovarian cancer, the most common form of ovarian cancer. With support from Ovarian Cancer Canada and the Cancer Research Society, Dr. Yojiro Yamanaka and his team at McGill University are exploring how this specific subtype develops in the fallopian tubes and eventually spreads to the ovaries.
Hope filled the air on Walk day in more than 35 communities as thousands of concerned Canadians banded together to ensure that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone. Meet some of your fellow participants and find out how much was raised.
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Today Ovarian Cancer Canada is closer than ever to securing $10 million in federal funding to support research, but more voices on this important issue are needed. Send a letter to your federal elected representative about why ovarian cancer research matters to you, and invite your friends and family to do the same.
A big thank you to Walk participants, organizing committees, and volunteers across the country for making this year’s Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope such a success. With your help $1.85 million and counting has been raised to date, surpassing the original goal of $1.8 million. These funds are being put hard to work helping women live fuller, better, longer lives.
