Description

Why participate in this run/walk?
We have donated over $129,000 to help underwrite the Ovarian Cancer Programs offered by the Lackey Free Clinic and the Olde Towne Medical and Dental Center for their under-insured and un-insured patients. The Karene O'Hare Ovarian Cancer Memorial Endowment Fund established in November 2016 is a permanent source of funds for this cause. The Endowment Fund enables us to achieve ongoing financial sustainability in our donation efforts to help build, strengthen and support the significant Ovarian Cancer health care that Lackey and Olde Towne provide. Our Run/Walk is the only annual fundraiser in the greater Williamsburg area raising funds to combat Ovarian Cancer. You can support our fundraiser by entering the run/walk, or by making a donation or by becoming a sponsor.  

The majority of Ovarian Cancers are diagnosed late, after the cancer has spread. Only about 19% of women are diagnosed early, when the disease may be curable. Doctors do not know exactly what causes Ovarian Cancer. All women are at risk, however, some factors and conditions may increase a woman’s risk of developing this condition such as age (women over 50 are more likely), a family history of breast or colon cancer, and women who have never given birth. Women need to know if they may be at a higher risk for Ovarian Cancer, and if so, what actions to take.  In fact, 90% of women diagnosed do not have a family history that might put them at a higher risk. 

Although Ovarian Cancer is less common than breast and cervical cancer, the low five-year survival rate underscores its deadliness. The over-all 5-year survival rate for women diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer is approximately 46%, versus 89% for women diagnosed with beast cancer and 72% for women diagnosed with cervical cancer.
