I lost my sister Amanda to ovarian cancer on October 10, 2020. She fought her battle publicly to bring attention to this horrible disease. It is my mission to continue to bring awareness and help save lives. Joining me in this episode is Emilie Chiasson from Ovarian Cancer Canada.

At the most difficult time in her life, Amanda tapped into an inner strength that we all now know as #Amandastrong. She publicly shared her journey with the world, touching the lives of thousands of people, in hopes to advocate for women like her who were diagnosed too late. Amanda wanted every woman to know there is no screening method for Ovarian cancer like there is for breast or even cervical cancer. Because of this, and because the symptoms can be vague, ovarian cancer is often referred to as the silent killer.
