To my Family and Friends; my strengh and my hope. Thank you all for accompaning me on this journey.

Personal Description:

At the end January 2008 I was diognosed with ovaian cancer and told I had months to live and then couldn’t get into see a oncologist for two weeks. I went for a second opinion; one week later had debulking surgery and had 6 chemos over the course of 4 months. For one year I was in remission, then last summer the cancer came back. September I started another round of chemo and finished just before Christmas. Once again my CA125 is below 21 and the “hot spots” piked up on the CT and PET scans are almost non existant. March 1st I go for blood tests and then see my oncologist on the 9th and then in two months repeat the blood tests and scans all over again. So far the cancer has not gone into any other organs for which I am very greatful.
