"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart."
Without our heroes, who support and help us in many different ways we would be lost. Meet our heroes!
"Being able to contribute to a cause that in the long run could help people affected and their families, feels extremely meaningful and honorable"
I live in Västerås and I have the honor of serving as the secretary in the foundation's board. It is first of all important but also fun and incredibly meaningful to help a charity getting a message out and making sure more money goes towards ovarian cancer research. Lenas Run for Life, our yearly charity run is a personal highlight!
"I do not want anybody to go through what I have been trough. Ovarian cancer concerns all of us. We all have a mother, grand mother, partner, wife, sister, daughter, cousin, aunt or future child or grand child that might be diagnosed with ovarian cancer."
Just like Lena, I have also been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I live in Sundsvall, and I support Lena Wäppling's Foundation by arranging Lena's Run for Life in Sundsvall. I enjoy signing up sponsors and inspire people to participate in the run. It is important for me that ovarian cancer gets more attention and that more money goes to research.
"I am impressed by Lena's dedicated work to improve women's health. I try to support every way I can: by volunteering at Lena's Run for Life and spreading information about her Foundation."
I live in Västerås, Sweden and I support Lena Wäppling's Foundation by volunteering at Lena's Run for Life. I enjoy helping out at the coffee stand and I also bake all the cinnamon rolls sold at the run.
"I am helping out with everything I can, my knowledge and my time. Thereby, the foundation's money can go towards where it is most needed: the research!"
I live in Sundsvall, Sweden and I help Lena Wäppling's Foundation with all graphic designs such as gift certificates, banners and posters promoting Lena's Run for Life. Cancer affects everybody: the patient, the family and the friends. Research is key to better understand and ultimately cure the disease. Passionate people like Lena are needed to drive this change and they need our help.
