When I was first diagnosed 5 years ago, I frantically searched for survivors... hoping to find some that battled this horrible disease and Won!  I could not find many.  Recently I realized that I haven't written on this site in a long time.  I would like to share this good news with you so that it might encourage someone.  I think we all believe we are definitely going to die when we are first diagnosed.  The fear, confusion, the pain and of course when we look in the mirror .... we see confirmation of our sickness.  Keep the faith and stay strong!  Wishing you all good health, Love Tricia

Dear Tricia..... I'm so happy to read your post this AM. This is just the kind of encouragement I also searched for when I was first came to this site. May your NED go on and on. Although I'm not in remission, I'll be celebrating 7 years (stage 3C) this May!

Thank you for checking in and posting.  So happy for you and congrats.  Thank you for your encouragement and care...

I was diagnosed in Feb. 2013 with stage 3C.  Just had my second chemo treatment of 18 (wkly regimen).  While it might be a tough couple of months ahead, hope and faith do make all the difference.

So thanks again for women like yourself and others who have been so helpful and encouraging.

Congrats! Five years is wonderful! It's great to hear this good news. I look forward to being a five year survivor in about a year and a half. Thanks for telling us and enjoy the next five years, then you can report back to us again to tell us about your tenth anniversary.

Enjoy, Kelly

You are no longer an ordinary girl!  You are extraordinary in your journey against this bitter disease.  With just this one post, you have won my admiration for facing down cancer at such a young age.  I am so much older than you, and I just can't imagine going through all this as a teenager.  Thanks for joining us!

Honey, I sincerely hope that you will beat all odds and outlive us all. If anyone deserves to be completely cured of ovarian cancer it's you.

When I read something like that I hate this disease even more.

How wonderful!  I'm sure your testimony will be of great inspiration to so many here.  And you are so right - that initial diagnosis is so frightening, especially when outward signs are obvious.  I always had a tendancy to feel better emotionally when I couldn't 'see' the evidence.  And when I could see it or feel it, I would sometimes be overcome with fear.  But then I relied on one of my favorite scripture verses, and God's promise:  'He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind'.

God Bless you!

Monika
