In Memory of Karen
Two years ago, my Mom was diagnosed with cancer. When she told me, I was SURE that we would beat this. I know lots of people who have beaten cancer. My Mom was a trooper. She attended chemo after chemo. I started to feel like we were losing the battle. Treatments failed, doctors always gave bad news. Thankfully, my Dad was able to get my Mom in touch with the right people, and get her on the right diet. I am 100% certain if he had not done this, she would not have survived as long as she did, and wouldn't have felt up to doing half of the things she accomplished while living with cancer.
In the long run, I hope that we can erradicate cancer, but for now: I hope we can provide more and better resources for women diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. There shouldn't be month long waits for standard tests and mismatched diagnoses from health care professionals. Your husband should not have to stay up until 4am trying to coordinate doctors appointments and to confirm information given. By participating in this walk, I hope the funds will make a dent in these problems.
I will conclude with a quote from my Mom: "Cancer? I don't give a rats ass!"
