Survivor Stories / Tributes

Cornelia Quirk

Personal Description:


My mother Cornelia Quirk died of Ovarian Cancer August 23rd, 2006. She fought hard for 5 years, bravely through surgery, harsh chemotherpay every 3 weeks with all the terrible side efects. She never once lost hope and never once complained She always felt she would beat it. She was an energetic, vibrant, brilliant and funny woman. A wonderful mother to 6 children and was just loved by all who knew her. The summer was her favorite time and this coming weekend is the beginning of the Summer season. She believed that had she been diagnosed at even stage 3 she would have survived it and thrived. She always said that the key to this horrible disease was early detection. Thank God we get closer to that every day. My wish for this memorial Day weekend is that all those battling Ovarian Cancer survive and eventually be cured so that you can enjoy many wonderful days ahead with your loved ones.

So sorry to hear about your Mother. My Mom was also detected with Stage 3B of Ovarian Cancer and we’re now preparing for Surgery and Chemo, both IV&IP.
Can you provide any tips to deal with this?

I am sorry that I am now only responding as I had not opened this site again until just now. I hope your Mother’s surgery went well. What I have learned from all of this is to cherish every day. Stay upbeat and positive as much as possible for your mother’s sake and while its possible that your mom can beat this..pray every day for her to do so. This is a tough cancer as the treatment is brutal. Don;t ever give up as some do make it. But also, ask all the questions you think you need to ask her while she is still able to answer. I feel for you as I know what you are going through. Stay strong. I am praying for you.

I lost my mother on July 23, 2009. I miss her so much. She fought so hard for four years. She was funny and wonderful like how you described your mother. She suffered so much. I pray they find a cure soon.

Happy Birthday Mum!

I wish you were here to celebrate it with us. You are so missed. Each year gets better in fighting this dreaded disease that took you from us. You will be on my mind all day today. I hope one day soon no one has to go through what you did and no family has to miss their mother the way we do you.

Love your daughters,
Toni, Cornelia and Sean

Dear Eileen,

I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I know what you are going though. Be good to yourself and do the things that remind you of her. The things you enjoyed together and the traditions that she started that keep her with you..keep those traditions up. They make you feel like she is till with you and it honors her memory. Life will never be the same, but you will be able to be happy again.
