September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

5 09 2010

I’m a regular reader of the BlogHer community posts. Seems I always learn something new when I visit. Among their many terrific blogs I enjoy staying in touch with Dynamic duo Corinne and Nils have done another great service by reminding us that this month is the annual awareness effort in the fight against ovarian cancer (the disease that took Corinne’s mother).

As I write today, Alan Brook, Kash and Kasturi Nayak are hopefully nearing the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in their Great Climb – honouring Alan’s late wife Adriana and raising funds for Ovarian Cancer Canada. Good luck to this gutsy trio! They picked a gruelling way to get the message out and raise awareness. My good friend Tracy made the trek/climb a few years ago for a U.K.-based cause and I remember her stories vividly (you don’t know blisters until you’ve climbed Kilimanjaro!).
