WICC Ontario Chapter held its annual Breakfast for Cancer on Nov. 3 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto. The sold-out event — with more than 450 insurance industry supporters in attendance — absorbed the personal and courageous story of Ovarian Cancer survivor and speaker Cynthia Badburn. Despite her obstetrician/gynecologist’s belief that her rash of symptoms was caused by an ovarian cyst, Bradburn had a gut feeling that it was something more serious. When she attended an Ovarian Cancer Canada ‘Listen to the Whispers’ awareness presentation at her workplace, “I cried and came out of there convinced I had ovarian cancer.” “Ovarian cancer may have changed my life, but I am determined to not let it ruin my life. I’ve learned that life has no guarantees, so I’m living each of my days to the fullest and I’m living without regrets. Anything that’s within my control, I’m going to take it and run with it.” •
