The Winners Walk of Hope in support of Ovarian Cancer takes place in cities across Canada on Sunday, September 7th.
As mentioned in one of my earlier blog posts, the Canadian ReDesigners Association (CRDA) has partnered with the Ovarian Cancer Canada (OCC) to ensure that women currently in treatment for ovarian cancer have a comfortable and harmonious room in their home in which to focus on rest and wellness. ReDesigners across Canada are volunteering their time and talent to create "Havens for Healing". Our American counterparts (IRIS) are doing the same across the U.S. by supporting their national Ovarian Cancer organization.
Studies have shown that a positive physical environment can help speed the healing process and offer a sense of well-being.
We want to help educate women about this disease as the symptoms are so vague they often go unnoticed. For more information on Ovarian Cancer please visit the OCC website www.ovariancancer.org
If you are, or know of, a woman undergoing treatment, please contact OCC toll-free at 1.877.413.7970
to find out how you can benefit.
