I am a mother who lost her oldest child (Wendy) at the young age of 37. She was a mother of 3 herself. After collapsing and being put on life support for about 6 hours, she passed. What we found out afterwards from a autopsy was she had undetected ovarian cancer that had spread to her brain. She did not show any signs of any illness. As you can imagine, this was a complete shock to the family. This was in 2006. Since then, i too have been diagnosed (Nov 2010) with limited small cell carcinoma. I am doing pretty good considering. After 25 radiation treatments and 4 cycles of chemo (3 days a week, off 2 weeks, my cancer is in full remission. I am blessed!!!!
