My mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in January, 2012. By then it was too late to reverse the disease. My parents could only hope that the doctors would slow its spread. The chemotherapy treatments were torture for my mom who suffered despite the excellent care she received. Mom died on October 5, 2012.
Cancer took my Mom when she was 71. She led a healthy lifestyle, she had no other illnesses, and the women in her family were long-lived. The diagnosis and the illness baffled and terrified my parents and everyone else in my family. The doctors and nurses who helped my mom were great, but they were powerless to stop this terrible, mysterious disease.
I am participating in the 7th Annual Fight To End Cancer to raise $20,000 to support research at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I don’t want other families to go through what mine did. Please support me. I am picking a fight with cancer but I need your help.
