Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my personal fundraising page for HOM Teal Strides for Ovarian Cancer! When you support the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance, MOCA, through a donation to my HOM Teal Strides team, you help fund critical research and programming for women and families impacted by ovarian cancer.
In past years, our team has focused on support through participation. This year, our family decided to embark on an ambitious fundraising effort.
Why the change?
As of today, there is NO reliable routine test to diagnose Ovarian Cancer in its early stages. Most women, like Jodie, are diagnoised after the cancer is so advanced that treatment is palliative rather than curative. Early detection leads to a five year survival rate of 90%. At the late stages, that survival rate drops to 10%.
The MOCA foundation is actively funding a researcher who is researching early detection. We want to support this vigorously! With your help, I would like our team to raise $10,000.
How can you help? There are two steps:
1. Make a personal donation above and beyond the event entrance fee. The entrance fee covers the cost of the event; the additional dollars raised are then donated to researchers.
2. Set a personal fundraising goal of $100. Ask your friends on Facebook to make a small donation. Put out a collection basket at an office potluck. $100 is easy to achieve through small steps.
If you can not or are unable to join our team, please consider a donation, all of which is funded to research.
Thank you for your years of support. I will still host a BBQ this fall to thank all of the team members, doners, family, friends and to share stories of Jodie. The BBQ will be on Friday, Sept. 15th from 5 - 8 pm. My address is 14051 Burma ave., Rosemount. If you've never attended, we have a lot of fun! More to come.
Thank you again for your support.
The Rychwalski Family
