Survivor Stories / Tributes

Maryann Reichert

Personal Description:

Dedication:

Lost my mom to ovarian cancer 20 years ago. She put up a valiant fight for two years. She died at the age of 47. I not only mourn her loss, but the I mourn because of the things in life she did not get to experience, her children’s weddings, grandchildren and more. She would have been a wonderful grandmother. I have made sure my children know her through my stories.

Personal Description:

I am soon to be 46 years old, the same age my mother was at her diagnosis. To say that in the back of my head there is not a lot of worry is an understatement. I do get my yearly exams and ultrasounds and always hope that this is enough. I wonder if sometimes I should be more radical and just have everything taken out. My children are younger than I was when my passed away, so being here for them is so very important to me.

MY MOM DIED AT 50. TWO MONTHS BEFORE MY 40TH I HAD A HYSTERECTOMY AND OOPHECTOMY. I WISH I DID IT SOONER SO I HAD THAT WEIGHT OFF OF ME. MENOPAUSE LASTS LONGER BUT FOR ME IT WAS WELL WORTH IT. GOOD LUCK THIS WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE.
