Warriors, I don't know exactly where I should start. The Foundation for Women's Cancer, which raises money for research on gynecological cancers, had the race this past weekend in DC this past weekend.
Saturday there was a course on Uterine and Ovarian cancer and it was really good to hear what leading surgeons had to say about current and future treatment. I think they were even a little surprised by the in depth, quality of questions from the groups, and what a treat to be able to get to those on the cutting edge. The opportunity to play with the robot used to preform many of our surgeries was truly fascinating!!
The Sunday walk was inspirational. I had the opportunity to meet some others I have met through this board (ccfighter I am going to meet you next year!) I really had to share with you the story of a woman I met today. She was diagnosed with Stage 3 UPSC and a second cancer (not related to the UPSC) in her fallopian tubes. In 4 days it will be 5 years of survival.
Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give up.
After my journey last year, this was really such a wonderful weekend.
