This week's Teal Spotlight Team is the Awesome Avengers
In October 2014,Judith Sammarco was diagnosed with stage IIIc ovarian cancer. “This came as a shock to me because I was only experiencing heartburn and some bloating which I assumed was from stress. After finishing treatment in 2015, a coworker and I decided to research ovarian cancer walk/runs and found the Sandy Sprint. Last year was our first year participating. This year, many of my family members, friends and coworkers who stood by my side while I was being treated didn’t even need to be asked. They knew the Sandy Sprint was coming up again in April and were looking forward to doing our second walk/run. I am so lucky to have had such a phenomenal support system and I hope to pay it forward for many years to come. With the help of Facebook, I am able to spread the word and educate others about ovarian cancer while also building my team. We hope to recruit 20 runners/walkers for 2017 and continue to increase the size of our group every year. This March, I will be celebrating my two-year anniversary of completing treatment. I hope to create awareness, spread the word, and educate others about ovarian cancer while raising funds for research. I knew nothing about this disease before my diagnosis and I don’t want others to be in the same situation.”
The “Awesome Avengers” are already looking for some great costume ideas for race day!
