Exciting story on local woman in my state

Hang on ladies, because I truly believe they are making headway for new, more effective treatments for cancer.  This story was in my local paper today.

For Taylor Cochrane, treatment using stem cells was floated by her doctor during her battle with a rare form of ovarian cancer, called small cell ovarian cancer. 

At the time, the Omaha lawyer and mother of two was going through several rounds of treatment, including chemotherapy. 

"I didn't have these grand thoughts that I could be cured," Cochrane said. "I didn't know, but I wanted life after cancer and I was going to do anything I could to at least get that." 

Two years later, Cochrane by and large credits the experimental treatment with keeping her alive.   She celebrated her second stem cell birthday August 25, which signifies the length of time since she's been in remission. 

"Based on the data I've seen and then my own anecdotal experience when talking with other survivors, I do think it would have been different," Cochrane said. "I don't think I would be here if I didn't.

Wow, this sounds promising! I wonder if there are any clinical trials using stem cells to fight uterine cancer?
