As an ovarian cancer survivor, I will race in 50 triathlons in all 50 states by 50-years-old to raise $100,000 for ovarian cancer research. This campaign is self inspired, self orchestrated and 100% self funded. In addition, all in-kind donations are turned into cash donations by me in the same name of the person who donates. I race for women who have lost their battle, women undergoing treatment and women yet to be diagnosed.

Please help with even a $10 donation!

18 Million Dollars and Counting

That's the amount L'Oreal has contributed to ovarian cancer research to date. Nope, not a typo. $18,000,000!!!
I had the honor of being asked to be one of two presenters at their employee breakfast this morning and it was a wonderful event. Standing room only, I spoke of my journey with diagnosis, treatment and my current campaign and effort to raise money and educate women about early detection. I think it went well; feedback was great.
In a world where money and profits seem like everything and greed runs rampant, L'Oreal is leading the way by being successful BUT doing the right thing. It is often hard to do the right thing but I think it is harder not to do the right thing. Their generosity is overwhelming and continues year after year.
September marks Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. All month L'Oreal will host events to educate their staff, their customers, all benefiting OCRF. They are the model company and it was a pleasure to be asked to present for them.
