Run for Ovarian Cancer - 2013


Once again, this year on Mother's Day, May 12, 2013, family and friends of Sunflower Sisters will be participating in the London Health Sciences Centre's Run for Ovarian Cancer.

Since 2006, all funds raised through this event go directly toward the Translational Ovarian Cancer Research Program, led by Dr. Trevor Shepherd and Dr. Gabriel DiMattia. These scientists and their team members perform laboratory research with ovarian cancer patient cells obtained here in London in collaboration with local cancer surgeons. Funds from the London Run for Ovarian Cancer help pay for this program, which is dedicated to making discoveries that will impact the health of ovarian cancer patients.

In the past 10 years, this grass-roots event has raised over 1 million dollars for Ovarian Cancer research to uncover the mystery of this silent killer.

Why not dust off your sneakers and join Team Sunflower Sisters in this fun, 5K run or 1K walk? If you are unable to participate, won't you please consider sponsoring our team or one of our runners/walkers?

Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated. We hope to see you there!

Ovarian cancer is uncommon type of cancer which arises from different types of cells within the ovary. The most common cancers are known as epithelial ovarian cancers. Women have two ovaries one on each side of the uterus. Ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen.
