You never think it could happen to you or a loved one
When I would think about cancer, the first thing that would come to my mind is an older person. I never knew much about “other” forms of cancer until just over three years ago when my mom called me and told me she had been given the news she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.
That word was like a shot through the heart, I didn’t know what that meant. She had her surgery and chemo and I travelled with her for everything for us it was not close by, it was a two hour drive each way.
The biggest thing I remember is how positive mom was through everything. Through losing her hair and having chemo medication straight into her stomach.
Three years later, I am happy to say she is STILL a cancer free and thriving.
I am walking for her and for all all women who are battling, lost their battles, won their battle like my mom. And I’m hopes that someday, we will have a proper screening process.
