Yesterday, my beautiful mother; Sandra Goodman - age 70, from Enfield, CT passed away.
At the age of 57 - she was given 1 year to live - with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. She fought a valiant, 14 year battle.
Everyone that knew her, loved her. She always had a smile, no matter what. When she couldn't sleep at night, she would bake and bring the goodies to her doctor's appn'ts to share with all the wonderful people who helped her along the way.
She was a strong advocate for Ovarian Cancer Awareness. She helped plan and participated in Survivors Day, and walked in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. She wrote articles for Conversations!, the International Newsletter for Those Fighting Ovarian Cancer. She was interviewed for a segment called Beyond the Headlines on Fox 61 News. She helped comfort many people who shared this disease or had a friend or loved one with Ovarian Cancer.
I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers when I posted weeks ago. She was very pleased when I told her about it.
God bless you all as you continue your own battles. God speed on a cure.
