What started as a professional growth project has really turned into a passion. Three years ago, I began volunteering for Laura’s Smile Mile coordinating their public relations. Over the years, I have been touched by the volunteers and participants who come together for a cause close to their hearts.

This past year, the name sake of the organization, Laura David left this world after a long and difficult battle with ovarian cancer. She would be proud to see everyone working so hard to continue to raise awareness of this disease.

Please visit our website Laura’s Smile Foundation. Read our blog.

When we contacted Jen Borzymowski about her team “Marchin for Marilyn” she was more then happy to speak with us on how the team came together for such a great cause!

Team “Marchin’ for Marilyn” is walking to support Jen’s mother-in-law, Marilyn, who was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer in April.

“To say her diagnosis has been a shock is an understatement.” says Jen Borzymowski. Marilyn went into the hospital for a “routine” hysterectomy, during surgery, cancer was found.

Jen wanted to do something for her mother-in-law.  She hoped there was something out there to support  “the cause”.   A quick internet search brought her to Laura’s Smile Mile!

Borzymowski says people have been signing up left and right to be part of the event and show their support for Marilyn. Family, friends and even members of her rugby team will be participating.

She says, “We’ve even gotten donations sent in from as far as Switzerland!”.

Marilyn told Jen that “come hell or high water” she IS going to be at Laura’s Smile Mile on June 4th! Jen says that Marilyn’s strength and positive attitude during this time have been truly inspirational.

Borzymowski states, ” She is ready to kick Cancer’s butt and I know with that attitude she will!”

We can’t wait to have Jen, Marliyn and Team ” Marchin for Marilyn” join us for this year’s event.

Thanks for participating!
