AMGEN Tour of California 2015 - Stage 4 Start

This year's Amgen Stage 4 Start was again in Pismo Beach and held on Wednesday, May 13th. Last year Sharon was the Ambassador of stage four of the tour, this year the Sharon Leigh Ovarian Cancer Foundation had a booth at the event where we shared knowledge and awareness on Ovarian Cancer. The booth was a huge success as we were able to talk to many people about Ovarian Cancer.

The AMGEN Tour of California is one of the nation's largest and most recognized annual sporting events. An eight-day event, this prestigious cycling road race features elite professional teams and athletes from around the world.

Sharon recently was diagnosed with a reoccurrence of Ovarian Cancer and desperately wanted to attend this important event, her sister thought she was crazy to attend because of how weak she was after her recent surgery. Sharon starts chemo treatments at the end of May.

Sharon's daughter Sheryll left her business in Hawaii (Hawaii Weddingmoons) to come take care of her mom. Sheryll took part in the mile walk for the event.

Sharon would appreciate your prayers as she begins her chemo treatments.

Amgen, Breakaway from Cancer® is a national initiative to increase awareness of important resources available to people affected by cancer – from prevention to survivorship.
