Just as I did the last couple years, I will be participating in Frocktober 2015. If you haven’t heard of it, Frocktober raises funds and awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Ovarian cancer is pretty awful, and one woman dies every ten hours from it. There is currently no early detection test, and women are usually diagnosed in the late stages of the disease – when the cancer has spread to other organs in the body. Since its inception, Frocktober supporters have donated more than $1 million to the OCRF. My challenge is to wear a different dress (i.e. “frock”) every day for the month of October. If you’d like to cheer me on and support this excellent cause, I have a fundraising page here. Last year my amazing supporters donated $924.30, and this year I’m aiming to hit a full $1000. Dig deep, people!
I’m also an official “Frocktober Ambassador” this year, so be prepared for a lot of posts and sharing about this excellent cause. And for any women out there – or even men! – you should definitely sign up and frock up. 🙂
