Some of you know I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer five (5) years ago. Luckily, I was diagnosed early and am in remission. This disease is very difficult to diagnose. Many women do not find out they have ovarian cancer until it is too late. I have seen it and it is heartbreaking.
When I was going through this experience, I asked if there was a charity I could get in contact with. I found out about The Celma Mastry Ovarian Cancer Foundation. This foundation helps women who don’t have the funds to pay for their medications, bills, rent and more. Each year a Race for the Cure takes place at Demons Landing Park. I am attaching the link for your information and hope that you all may want to join in, donate or volunteer for the cause.
The Celma Mastry Ovarian Cancer Foundation One Step Closer To The Cure 5K/10K /1Mile Run/Walk will be held on September 30, 2017.
The race starts at Albert Whitted Park in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg. The runners and walkers get to experience a beautiful sunrise. Most of the course is along the waterfront with city streets closed to traffic. All participants receive a great t-shirt and finisher’s medal and get to cheer for women who inspire so many with their strength. Great refreshments and music too and loads of competition among teams.
