Welcome to My Personal Page
On Sunday, September 22, the 10th Annual “Heat It To Beat It” Walk will be happening again. Althought I will not be walking this year please consider making a donation on my fundraising page! This walk was launched ten years ago to raise awareness and funds for research for a unique surgery and treatment of a rare form of cancer.
Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy ( HIPEC) is a highly effective, concentrated, heated chemotherapy that is delivered directly to cancer cells in the abdomen – this cancer is known as peritoneal carcinomatosis ( PC). The Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy is one of only a handful of medical institutions in the country that offer this treatment and is dedicating extensive research to the use of HIPEC in the fight against this rare form of cancer of the abdomen and organs within the abdominal cavity as well as treating ovarian cancer.
“Heat It To Beat It” refers to the use of the heated chemotherapy which we’ve all learned is essential in beating this type of cancer! The walk is our vehicle to raise awareness and the necessary funds to continue the research that brings us this life saving treatment.
I am motivated to participate in this event because I wholeheartedly believe this procedure saved my Mom's life! I want to be a part of helping to spread the word so others can benefit as well!
I hope you will consider supporting me and this important cause by making a donation using the DONATE NOW button to the right of this page!
Your support is appreciated!
