Personal Description:


To all the courageous women who fought or are fighting, my wish for you is strength, peace of mind and to be cancer-free.

Personal Description:

The cancer was found accidentally in Dec. 2005 after my family doctor ordered a full CAT scan for a discomfort I was experiencing under my left breast. I feel very fortunate that it was found. I was told borderline Stage III. I had a complete hysterectomy and appendectomy. Then 6 rounds of chemo. My CA125 is now checked every six months and is low and stable. I’m doing what my oncologist told me: “go and live your life”.
