My Challenges:


Hello Everyone

It is nice to meet you all. I am reaching out to you because I need your help in my mission to spread awareness of Ovarian Cancer.

After having a health scare of my own I became very aware of Women's health Issues, esp with cancer in the reproductive organs. It is so sad that organs that can bring so much joy to life (children) can also cause so much heartache.

Earlier this year I entered MRS Australia because they are focusing on Ovarian Cancer and working towards creating awareness and raining funds. I was chosen as a finalist, so I have been using this time to get the word out and create awareness myself. Being a MRS Australia finalist has given me more of a voice than what I had in my previous attempts when it was just me on my own.

There are only 3 weeks left before the crowning and I want to do as much as I can in that time for Ovarian Cancer.
I am hoping you ladies might be able to help me.

By voting for me, you give me the chance to do this for another year (I'll do it any way, but its more successful this way). Here is the link:

By donating a few dollars, we can start working on early detection and treatment.

If you happen to live in Sydney Australia, you can also attend my breakfast.

Thank you all so much in advance for your help.
And stay healthy and educate the friends and family around you :)

Kind Regards
Yolandi Franken
