On July 19th The Nurses walked to support the search for a cure for Ovarian Cancer. The Swedish Summer Walk/Run for Ovarian Cancer was an incredible event shared with friends and family. We walked in honor of Bre’s Mom, Lynn, who is fighting bravely against this terrible disease. With Bre’s mom, family and friends we walked, laughed and cried in all of the love and support we experienced. Thank you to those who walked with us, donated and supported us with good thoughts and prayers! Special thanks to the Swedish Marsha Rivkin Center for organizing the event.
There is no regular early screening for Ovarian Cancer. The signs and symptoms of the disease include bloating, increased urination and abdominal and pelvic pain. To support research for better screening and treatment go to The Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research to find out how you can help.
