On September 7th, 2003, Chemo Chicks set up shop at the 5th annual walk/run for awareness & hope to benefit ovarian cancer, an event especially dear to my heart, as I am still undergoing treatments for my ovarian cancer.

The event was held on the CBS Studio Center lot in Studio City, CA. It was a beautiful sunny California day and our colorful booth looked fabulous among the variety of vendors. Mouthy Chick and I (Ultra Chick) manned the booth, sold our Parkhurst hats and Chick-a-Tude Tees™, and schmoozed up the crowd of runners and supporters.

750 runners and 140 walkers participated in this year's event, which has doubled in size since the first year in 1999, with prizes going to top finishers. Approximately 25 thousand dollars was raised in support of research and education specifically for ovarian cancer. We want to thank the Ovarian Cancer Coalision (OCC) volunteers and event organizer, Gail McKenna, for all their amazing efforts. Gail is a one women powerhouse and 14-year ovarian cancer survivor.

The mission statement of the OCC is, "…to educate the general public as well as the medical community of the signs and symptoms of this disease, and to support research to help find an early detection method and successful treatment." I, for one, realize that it is due to grassroots fundraising efforts like this one that the treatment options that are saving my life today are available.

Of course, for me, the best part of the day was meeting so many ovarian cancer survivors of 5, 10, and 20 plus years!
