My name is Renee and today I'm NED. In Dec., 2009, I was diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer after my hysterectomy. I finished my first 6 rounds of carbo/taxol in June, 2010, and today I finished maintenance taxol! I want to thank you all for all the help you've given me. I searched topics when I had questions and found wonderful advice. I rejoiced when you got good news and cried and prayed for you when you got bad news, needed comfort, or mourned those we lost. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers every day as we all fight this monster. Thank you all.

Renee....we had exactly the same treatment and almost at the same time. I was diagnosed in Sept, 2009 and finished the year of Taxol maintenance in January, 2011. I am also NED and rejoicing every day that I am alive and well and able to do whatever I like.

I have met some of the bravest, wisest, most caring women in the entire world on this little board. I am delighted you have decided to come out of the closet, so to speak. We all need one another. I just wish we had met under different circumstances.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement.

This is the best place to come for support. Someone always had the same questions, concerns, fears, etc. that I had/have. I know that there are things that I can talk about here that I can't talk to my family and friends about, namely my fears. I've learned so much from all of you.

I'm celebrating this week because it would have been a chemo week. So after 14 months of chemo, no blood tests, chemo, sick days, pills, chemo taste .... I'm down to a monthly CA 125 test and seeing my doctor every 3 months. I've been blessed that my CA125 levels have always been around 2 (except for my pre-surgery one, which I don't remember what that was). It's funny, everyone has been congratulating me on finishing chemo, but I've got a feeling I'm not done with this so I haven't really been celebrating, not like you celebrate when you graduate from school. But I have been enjoying not having chemo. I pray for a long remission, like, forever.

May we all have forever remissions!

Renee
