My little sister was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer at 22 years old, we were not only completely shocked by the diagnosis but also by the additional cost for medications needed to protect her during chemotherapy treatment.

Frocktober is a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer research and to educate the broader community of the issues surrounding ovarian cancer.

I will be joining many others for Frocktober, wearing a dress everyday for the month of october to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research. Even at my day job, teaching dance and pilates!

I have had two family members diagnosed. My sister was incredibly lucky that she was diagnosed quickly, while my grandma┬álost her identical twin sister to another strand of ovarian cancer several years ago. So it hits home. Therefore I really want to get behind Frocktober, so other families don’t have to go through the same thing.

Please support this amazing cause and give today.
