This year's honoree: Ovarian Cancer Survivor Sharon Weeks
This year’s Candler Clays Charity Shoot & Auction honoree is ovarian cancer survivor, Sharon Weeks.
Sharon was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on Jan. 16, 2012. A PET scan revealed it was Stage IV cancer and had metastasized in her liver despite an earlier diagnosis that declared the cancer was caught early. With the help of Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion physician’s Dr. George Negrea, oncologist, and Dr. William Edward Richards, GYN/Oncologist, Sharon established a plan and “never looked back.”
“I immediately began researching, gathering and compiling as much information as possible about this disease,” Sharon said.
She continued her relentless pursuit of being her own advocate.
Sharon went through 21 chemotherapy treatments and countless setbacks before emerging victorious. After a recent reoccurrence in her liver, she is once again in complete remission.
Being honored at the Candler Clays Charity Shoot & Auction is another venue in which Sharon can share her message with women to be diligent about their health. She encourages women to enlist the services of a trusted institution such as the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion at St. Joseph's/Candler should you receive a cancer diagnosis.
“Most importantly, and I can’t stress this enough, be your own health advocate,” says Sharon.
Sharon is married to Steve E. Weeks of Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors. Her hobbies include hunting, shooting sporting clays, gardening and living life to the fullest.
The 15th annual Candler Clays Charity Shoot & Auction, benefiting Advancements in Cancer Care, is Feb. 24-25, 2017.
