Happy Hatters Personal Stories in Loving Memory of Nanci Sargent

Welcome Happy Hatters!

These hats are meant to represent strength, courage, hope, wisdom, and love for all those affected by cancer. With it's sparkles and glitter it often gets a lot of attention that opens the door to conversations about ovarian cancer. Other times, the hat just strikes up a friendly chat that results in meeting new people that give you that extra smile. Each and every woman has their own unique style and beauty. Please remember to try to embrace each day, stay brave, stand tall, and remain strong. We thank you for all that you are and all that you do. To all the survivors, caretakers, doctors, friends, and family...our hats are off to you!

Love and hugs,

Our wonderful Nanci Sargent lost her battle with ovarian cancer. We will miss Nanci tremendously and continue to celebrate her incredible legacy. Nanci introduced Happy Hatters and the note above explains what it meant to her. We invite you to celebrate with us by visiting Nanci's Awareness Tent on event morning, picking up your Happy Hatters hat, and continuing to spread Nanci's message.

We'd love to hear your story. Tell us why you participate in run for her. Your thoughts and words inspire others. Please submit your stories to

Deborah's Story

I walked this year because last year I sat on a chair during the event. I sat because I was in the middle of chemotherapy for stage IIIc ovarian cancer. This year I walked; would have run but my friends and family wouldn't have been able to keep up with me! From the bottom of my heart, I thank my amazing doctors, Andrew Li & Philomena McAndrew, along with the most incredible nurses, family & friends who support me through this journey. The money and awareness that is raised will keep me alive for a very long time. For that I am forever grateful! I can't wait until 2011 run for her......we are putting together the biggest team ever and hope to raise even more money to support Cedar-Sinai's important research!
