The family and friends of Georgina Nelson are uniting to raise money to help with her fight against Ovarian Cancer.

More than 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 15,000 women die annually from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in their later stages when the prognosis is poor.

That statement should of meant something to me. Whenever I would hear about those sorts of statistics I would think that there's enough going on in my life- I can't worry about cancer that more than likey won't effect me, Until a little over two weeks ago- My friend-My dear friend- went to her doctor to follow up as to why her tummy had swelled up as much as it did-seemed as if it swelled over night- as if she was 6 months pregnant- within 72 hours of her doctors visit her life changed completely.
Georgina has been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer Stage IIIC.
How in the world could this of happened- She's only 39 and faithfully followed up on her annual doctor visits- She has a 20 year old son, her daughter is only 10 and a loving husband- The list of why this shouldn't be happening goes on and on- Ovarian Cancer is known as the silent killer for a reason as mentioned previously Ovarian Cancer is usually detected in it's later stages- Without knowing-without given a fair fighting chance this cancer quitely kills.
Georgina, never wanted or accepted an upper advantage-she always wanted a fair fighting chance and opportunity to earn her position.
Just as the case is with most of us if life presents most of us with challenges we suffer some sort of financial set back- we've all been there, but how in the world can most of us overcome this without help-without atleast a fighting chance- The reality of cancer effecting anyone of us is real- As sure as this has happened to my friend Georgina it could of been me, it could be you, your mom, your sister, your daughter-You would find yourself not being too proud to ask for help- You also would find yourself creating this page-extending your plea out to strangers with hopes to create a team of brothers and sisters that will help in anyway they can.
Please help us raise money toward the treatment and fight for Georgina's life- Please help us raise awareness to this ugly disease- Any contribution you can give is greatly appreciated- by your donation you're supporting Georgina's fight- You are saying SILENT NO MORE A FAIR FIGHT. Everyone deseres a fair fight.
Please show your support!
