In honor of my cousin Molly and to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, I am participating in the SheROX triathlon in Detroit.
In February 2011, my cousin Molly went in for a routine check up in Memphis and the doctor noticed a mass. The doctor recommended a CT scan and within days, Molly was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer at the young age of 24. She underwent surgery to remove the germ cell tumor from her right ovary and unfortunately they found that the cancer was worse than they expected. She spent months in the hospital recovering and starting her chemo.
Living in Michigan, we supported Molly with prayers. We wanted to do more, but didn't know what would be helpful. My husband and I participate in a few races a year to stay in shape and have a little competitive fun. I started searching for races that supported the fight against Ovarian Cancer. I discovered the SheROX event in Detroit. Now I could race with a purpose!
The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the official charitable partner for the 2011 SheROX triathlon series. OCRF's mission is to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for Ovarian Cancer.
Please support Team Molly by making a donation! Let's all fight this together!!!
