Ovarian cancer has directly impacted both a close personal friend along with a friend and work colleague. My dear, close friend Lesley is still with us and is testimony to advances in science which have been made to overcome this dreadful disease. However, the sudden and tragic loss of my business colleague and 'power-house' Angie in July to ovarian cancer reminds us just how far we still need to travel to beat it. Lesley is a great person and talent, as was Angie and I am running to help reduce the odds that this insidious disease preys on the longevity of women and to remember Angie who was taken from us far too soon. Please support Ovacome by donating to my page as I put myself through 26.2 miles of the Loch Ness Marathon on October 1st 2023.
