Review for KINDAH FOUNDATION INC, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Florida GYN Cancer Teal 5K Run/Fun Walk celebrated its 5th year this year, with a Virtual Run/Walk, due to COVID-19. I have had the privilege of being there from the very beginning. The Kindah Foundation, with excellent organizers such as Bridgett Parris, have done an excellent job each year, in making this not only a family fun event but bringing awareness and education to all, concerning the GYN Cancers. Gynecologic Cancers have affected women from all walks of life, yet, there is still not enough awareness especially about Ovarian Cancer (“The Silent Killer”), so named because of its vague symptoms, and by the time of diagnosis, in some cases, would have metastasized.

According to The New England Journal of medicine, “Ovarian Cancer is a leading
cause of death from gynecologic cancers in women worldwide.”

This yearly event not only provides the fun, but provides information, resources, counseling, and excellent medical personnel to assist anyone experiencing these conditions.

Come on out and join this community each year (hopefully the coronavirus will be gone), so that we can actually meet again to enjoy this very important and informative event!

Thank you Bridgett Parris and the Kindah Foundation for bringing awareness on these subjects.
