Survivor Stories / Tributes

Linda Rhoades

Personal Description:


This tribute is to an amazing woman that has touched so many lives.
She lost her battle with ovarian cancer on Sunday January 20, 2008 at only 45 years old.

Personal Description:

She fought with all she had to stay with her friends and family and enjoy every bit of life she had left to the fullest extent without letting on about how bad she was feeling. Ive never seen a person with so little do so much for others, or such a strong person, we could all learn from her. Words could never express how much she meant to so many people of which included her daughter Jen her world, her love John, sisters and brothers Kim, Sharon, Philip Jr., Robert, and David, sister-in-laws and close friends Georgia and Judy, nieces and nephews, extended children and grandchildren, Doctors, nurses, many friends and people close to her heart. She touched the lives of so many it would be impossible to list. Please live how she would live and enjoy life like she should of been able to.
Your heart will go on “Baby doll”
Love Heather

how so totally ironic!!! I too have ovarian cancer, was diagnosed December 4, 2007, I’m still fighting the fight. I will gladyly donate to this foundation when I’m finacially straightened out. It’s time that we make this disease known, all we hear about is breast cancer, no mention of ovarian.
