My daughter just told me today that a young woman she went to school with has OVCA. I have friended her on FaceBook, and will try and get her to join us here. She can't be more than 36 or so.
This reaffirms my decision to participate in the vaccine trial. It's sad and awful to lose your mom to this crappy disease, even as an adult, but little kids should NEVER have to go thru that. Never. What if this were my daughter? Who would take care of her kids? She is a single mom, and her ex is not worth the ammo it would take to blow his brains out.
We need a cure, and an accurate means of detecting it early. I am so tired of everything being about the boobs. Granted, ovaries aren't as cute, but damn.....they can be just as deadly. New tee shirt idea: "I had my ovaries removed because they tried to kill me. Support Ovarian Cancer research."
