I am new to this whole discussion board thing and never thought I would be discussing cancer none the less. My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian dysgerminoma on early October of this year. My family is devistated. Although we are clinging to faith that her prognosis will be good, how can we explain to her what she is going through. She has gone through her first round of BEP chemo with flying colors and will be starting her second round next week. The tumor was so large that we are having to do chemo first to shrink it. That scares me. It has been absolutley impossible to find a parent whose child has gone through the same thing at this age. Is there anyone out there who has run across someone in a similar situation?
