On Saturday, June 11th, thousands of teal-clad women, men and children will come together at Denver’s City Park for the 13th annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness benefitting the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA). For survivors who have battled ovarian cancer, this showing of solidarity and support provides hope, inspiration and invaluable connections. Judy Sherman (69), who attended her first Jodi’s Race in 2019 just one month after completing her first round of chemotherapy, recalls the power of the beads. At the Race, each survivor is given a strand of beads for every year of survival since their initial diagnosis. “I looked around and saw all these women with their necks draped in beads,” recalls Sherman. “I walked up to several and asked them if I could touch their beads for luck. It gave me such strength.”

There are many concerns compounding the complexities of choosing to retire. These can include worries of income loss or living on a fixed income to having too much free time. For some, retirement can have an impact on your relationships or your physical and emotional health. Maybe life did not always provide opportunities to save money the way you had hoped. Maybe you didn’t find hobbies that provide the similar sense of purpose we often get from work. Solutions are not always right in front of you. It can take creativity or thinking outside the box.

While Alzheimer’s disease was first diagnosed 115 years ago, it wasn’t until 2021 that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first medication designed to address the underlying biology of Alzheimer’s. That medication, aducanumab, will be the subject of a free webinar, New Advances in Alzheimer’s Treatments, offered in September by the Alzheimer’s Association.
