My Mother has Stage III OC. She has couragously been battling this disease NON-STOP for 13 years. She is the most amazing person I know. She has been a source of strength, admiration and hope for so many women. She has had three major surgeries and 9 different chemo regimens - lasting from 6 months - 10 months each as well as 1 course of radiation. During breaks from treatment she and my father would advocate for Ovarian symptom awareness and give others newly diagnosed hope by sharing her story of survival. She has made it this far largly in part by having a positive attitude, a support system and a will to survive. At this time, she is very, very sick and hospitalized. I know that this board is filled with compassionate and caring people who are going through similar experiences. I am hoping that if we all send some positive thoughts and prayers her way, that possibly she can pull through this. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know that she would too.
