Welcome friends, family, and fans of Rachel Banov Gould.
In February of 2011, Rachel was diagnosed with cervical cancer. During her treatment, she was inspired to participate in the National Race to End Women's Cancer and support the Foundation for Women's Cancer, which supports research, awareness, and education of all gynecologic cancers. In our first year of taking part in the race, Rachelís team, named for her blog of the same name, raised thousands of dollars. Just as important, she also felt a sense of hope as so many loved ones came together that day to support her.
Rachel died March 28, 2012, but we continue to honor her memory by racing (and walking) again this year. We also walk in memory of Rachel's friends, Linda Woods, who died of ovarian cancer, and her daughter, Patti Varney, who died of colon cancer later in 2012.
Last year, the incredible generosity of our team enabled the Foundation to publish new cervical cancer education brochures. Itís an everlasting tribute to Rachel.
