Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer Awareness Walk & 5K Run

Welcome to Team Jean

Team Jean is dedicated to our daughter, Jean Veronica Wharton. Jean passed away after an 18 month battle with Ovarian Cancer on July 31, 2015 a few weeks after her 39th birthday. 

Jean was not only a loving daughter, but also a caring sister to Tom and Kristen. She was a friend to many, a devoted teacher and mentor. She had a smile that would light up a room. She loved a good laugh, a beer or two and loved playing Trivia with Tom and his friends. Her loss is felt by many, many people. 

During the months that Jean fought for a cure for this disease, she was always more concerned about the people around her than she was about herself. That's why I can say that if she could contact us, she would be screaming"Do something so this doesn't happen to another daughter, sister, friend, teacher or mentor!"

This is why we are asking you to contribute to this cause. Contribute because Jean would appreciate it. Thanks.
