A successful career as a musician, a music teacher, event organizer and Founder of Every Woman Festival have given Sophie the skills to promote and raise awareness for her chosen charities. Sophie is passionate about women’s health issues, and the effect they have on families.
Sophie is particularly focused on raising awareness about Ovarian Cancer and supporting its research, as it is a deadly disease, which is not detectable yet in the early stages.
As an Ambassador of Ovarian Cancer Canada, Sophie works to promote awareness about the disease. Ovarian Canada is Canadian charitable organization whose mission is to overcome ovarian cancer, providing leadership by supporting women living with the disease and their families, raising awareness in the general public and health care professionals, and by funding research to develop early detection techniques, improved treatment and, ultimately, a cure. Sophie is passionate about this cause, and coming up will speak at the Calgary Women’s Show on 14th and 15th April 2012 about the disease and will also give a presentation to young women in high schools across Alberta promoting awareness about Ovarian Cancer.
Sophie will also focus on fundraising for OCC through events, and will also perform at their 2013 Love Her event next February. More details coming soon! Ovarian Cancer Canada is the only national charity in Canada dedicate solely to overcoming Ovarian Cancer.
