Nicole's Fundraising Page
On Sunday, September 22nd, I will participate in the 10th Annual “Heat It To Beat It” Walk and you can be a part of it by making a donation! 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. I am motivated to participate in this event because HIPEC saved my life - I'm a 5 year survivor of appendix 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 hope you will consider supporting me and this important cause by joining me in the walk or making a donation!
Your support is appreciated! XO Nicole
