For who ever cares why I stay on this forum, originally back in 2006, I was just down right scared to death. I frantically searched the internet seeking answers. Things moved so fast for me once my very large mass was discovered, all within a 5 day period, I had a CT scan, met with my physican, met with a oncology/gyn, and was being wheeled into surgery to discover my fate. It was a bit too surreal. This forum was truly the only forum out there in the cyber world that I found a group of strangers, that answered my questions immediately and seemed to truly care, and they didn't even know me. After my surgery, and going through several months of chemotherapy, I wanted to put Ovarian Cancer behind me, I wanted to pretend, that it never existed, but I always found myself coming back to this forum and reading through the posts and getting updates on Caring Bridge, shedding tears for members defeats and clapping for their triumphs. I realized that I can't hide from Ovarian Cancer, it is forever a part of me and maybe someone how, some way, we can make a difference.
