Survivor Stories / Tributes

Priscilla Anne Wolthusen

Personal Description:


As administrative lab manager of the Terry VanDyke Lab (Lineberger Cancer Center, The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill), Anne was passionate about the development of mouse models for ovarian cancer research.

Personal Description:

Anne’s personal battle with ovarian cancer began in the summer of 2006 and ended on October 3, 2009. She received excellent care from her gynecologic oncologist, Dr. Daniel Clarke-Pearson, and oncology nurse, Lyn Filip.

Anne was a fighter. Her boisterous yet caring personality and her audacious zest for life are missed.

One year after losing your battle, I still feel your winning personality! Just remembering your smile helps me through my seemingly smaller battles in life. I love you and miss you, my fellow feline-loving friend! 2010.11.07

It is common to feel pain there pslecialey during that time of the month. If you have breast cancer, it will not usually hurt you will just feel a new lump. If you feel lumps, they may be nothing. Some people have cysts in their breasts that are not cancer. I had a big one did not hurt. I got it removed and it was not cancer. So, just feel your breasts for lumps and do self-examinations. Plus let you doctor do this to feel for anything you missed usually done during your yearly physical. However, if you feel something different, you should go to your doctor about it, to be on the safe side. If you just feel some pain there, while on your period, that is common, and I have the same thing during that time. Was this answer helpful?
