Joyful news as I got another clean bill of health from the oncologist. He is encouraged that I have been free of any relapse even though my ovarian cancer cell was Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor (mmmt), which is an aggressive sarcoma.
I continue to work on my book Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir, which is now in the hands of the book designer. I hope to educate and inspire women and their partners about the signs, tests, and treatments for this cancer. There is so little information out there so we need to speak out.
My journey with cancer has been as much a spiritual one as it was physical and emotional. God became an important part of my life when I was a teenager, and I have not lost sight of Him since. I cannot imagine going through the challenge of any cancer without a strong belief and trust in God. I have leaned on His shoulders many times.
I welcome you to share your story about ovarian cancer, because we can all learn from AND be supportive of each other. God bless you.
