Two years ago in March, I was dx with this disease. At the time, my prognosis was so poor, that I was encouraged to think about where to place my 14 year old twins since I am a single mother with no family close by. (I am in Kansas and my family in California.) I was told since I would spend alot of time in the Hospital, other arrangements needed to be made.
Flash forward 2 years: Ca 125 this week is a 7 and CT scan was clear. Twins are now 16 and just completed 10th grade here in Kansas where they wanted to stay. I have been off Chemo 23 months.
I am not always a nice person. I have never invented something to save someones life.I did not have the access to the most renowned hospitals in the world. I could hardly afford to get to Kansas City for my Surgery and everything else was done here is Topeka.
So what do I believe helped. YOU! Whenever you posted new medical information on this board, YOU helped. Whenever you offered Prayer or kind words to others, YOU helped. Just being able to read the encouragement offered to others helped.
I know at some point my prognosis could change again but I just want YOU to know that when you send love and prayer, YOU HELP.
