I'm a 45 year old woman diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in July 2001. I had extensive surgery followed with 6 rounds of chemo. I'm thrilled to say that i have No Evidence of Disease at this time.
I was extremely devastated because at first it was thought that I had pancreatic cancer. After numerous tests, it turned out to be ovarian. Being a normally in control person, I hit ROCK BOTTOM not knowing how I was going to get through it all and gain back my control. It came in time.
One thing I DID and STILL do is that after EVERY chemo, CT scan, blood test, I "reward" myself. It can be as small as a latte or as big as a new purse, my real weakness!!! Stay Strong.
