On Wednesday the 3rd of May 2017 at 1:05pm Sue sadly lost her battle to the silent killer Ovarian Cancer. May she rest in peace and her legacy Walk with me live on.
My name is Sue Contarino and I am 49 years old and live in Wonga Park with a very supportive husband and beautiful 7yr old daughter. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer on the 28th November 2013 and have been through three x 6month cycles of chemotherapy and I am and I am currently waiting to get onto a clinical trial.
For 2017, my Ovarian Cancer has been allowed to grow to “measurable size” whilst waiting for this trial. I’m not sure what the future medical treatment holds for me throughout 2017.I am grateful I am still alive and I created this event in February this year in honour of February’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness month that is worldwide.
Ovarian Cancer Awareness month is February every year. The ‘Walk with Me’ event is held on the last Sunday of every February. It starts 6am from Lilydale Station and concludes approx 3:30pm in Warburton with a distance of 42km. The beauty of this event is that you can start and finish where ever and when ever you like… There are donation boxes along the trail on the day manned by volunteers.
All money raised by walk with me 2018 will go the Ovarian Cancer Australia – let’s find an early detection.
