I found this bit of happy news on the Inspire discussion board!
"What do you mean by long-time survivor? I am a 14 year ovarian, stage 4 survivor, and yes, I do take supplements and have since my initial surgery. I feel as if they are an important part of keeping my immune system built up so IT can control the cancer. I had a total "cleanout" surgery, and did 6 courses of taxol and carboplatin over a seven mos period. Fighting cancer became 'my job', and I researched any info I could find. I am very strong in my faith and spent a lot of time in prayer as well. I am and have been well since I finished up the chemo. I do no other meds or treatments and can do anything and have loads of energy. I feel very blessed."
