Our employee, Hallie, will be soon finishing up her second round of chemotherapy so we have all learned a lot about the impact of cancer on someone's life and the lives of those around them. Undergoing chemo, and dealing with the physical, emotional, mental and financial toll of cancer is an intense journey. We have done some fundraising for Hallie and her family, and now it seemed appropriate for us to show our support for others in the community who are on this journey as well.
COCA promotes awareness and early detection through advocacy & education. They also offer the following services to women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer:
~ professionally-led support groups throughout the Denver & Boulder areas
~ financial assistance for women in treatment
~ a 50+ page Resource Guide offering helpful information for those on this journey
~ Comfort Kits which include information and items of support & comfort
Jodi's Race is an event for individuals, families, and friends to celebrate and honor those that are dealing with cancer and to remember those that have passed. We would love to have you on our team, showing your support for Hallie and all of the other women, their families and their friends.
Coming together as a community, supporting each other in time of need.
The symptoms can be mild, and most of us women would say we have felt this way at one time or another. As Hallie repeatedly reminds us, "Listen to your body. You know best when something feels abnormal. And don't let your doctor dismiss these symptoms, for they can imitate many other common ailments. If there is any doubt at all, ask for the CA-125 blood test and a pelvic ultrasound. It could save your life."
