Ovarian Cancer Walk 2021

Fighting In Faith

Welcome to our Team page for the 2021 Ovarian Cancer Walk!!

Our Fighting in Faith Team has grown to incude 3 AMAZING WOMEN all fighting stage 3 and 4 Ovarian Cancer!! 
Leslie Williams, Becky Gordon and Kathy Jennings are the team captains and our donations and funds raised will be totaled under the Team Name - Fighting in Faith.

Read below for our stories!

100% Donations go directly to research at Duke Cancer Institute for Ovarinan Cancer to find new treatments, cures, and diagnostic screenting tools to detect Ovarain Cancer earlier when it is more treatable.  Most cases of Ovarian Cancer are detected at Stage 3 and 4.

This research will benefit Ovarian Cancer patients worldwide! Duke runs many clinical trials for new treatments every year.  In fact, Kathy participated in a Phase 1 trial for Pembrolizumab in 2018 for 12 months.  I may be eligible for a new trial at Duke coming soon.  


Kathy was diagnosed in June 2017 with Stage 4 OC - High Grade Serous Epilthelial Ovarian Cancer when she was at the age of 56, at her PEAK of health, working out daily, eating organic nutritious whole foods and doing most of life the "healthy way!"  Ovarian Cancer snuck up on her and never presented symptoms until it reached stage 4.  Even 2 MRIs, 4 ultrasounds, and numerous doctors missed the cancer until she found a lump in her lower abdomen and by was Stage 4! I had a recurrence of Ovarian cancer in October 2020 and finished chemo for a second time in Feb 2021

Becky Gordon was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer in 2019.  Becky has recently begun chemo again to hopefully keep the cancer from increasing.

Leslie Williams, was diagnoesd in 2018 at the young age of 46 with Stage 3 Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer.  She is currently in remission.

We are all fighting for our lives as Ovarian Cancer has a 95% recurrent rate and we only have a 17-25% chance of living 5 years from our initial diagnosis.

Thank you so much for considering donations to this important cause.  Ovarian Cancer research has been underfunded and it is a very difficult disease for early detection.  Most cases are detected well into Stage 3C where the survival rates drop to 38% and 17% for stage 4.

We need your help and we are so thankful for the support and encouragement you give us!

Join OUR team and let us Fight In Faith!!!


Kathy, Leslie and Becky
