These Women are Strong
I have been a constant bother on the Ovarian Cancer Forum asking question after questian and let me tell you - these women are AMAZING! Many of them are survivors of stage IV, many of them are in the midst of it all .... they have re-occurances and are currently on chemo - sometimes for the fourth and fifth time. These are women of all ages - some early twenties and it goes all the way up into the 70s. They are all strong women who are, even in the middle of all of it, helping others. Cancer is a horrible disease but ovarian cancer sneaks up on people and you usually have a stage III or IV by the time you start showing any symptoms they can identify.

My momma may be 74 but she is one strong woman. She is determined to lick this....kick it in it's butt. I want her to be right, she has to be right. I don't know what I would do without her. She's not herself right now and I want my momma back.

There is ALWAYS hope and I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.

Many prayers going out for your mom.

Thanks Judy,
She is on a lot of prayer chains but it never ceases to amaze me how people that don't even know you can empathize and offer up prayers for a stranger....thank you for praying!

Oh petunia, I am so sorry your mom and your family is going through this. Cancer Sucks! Btdt. I hope she can find a comfort in treatments and that it keeps her functioning for a long long time to come. I will say my prayers.
