My sister called today. She was finally able to go for a little walk outside, and is starting to feel much better..

It didn't hurt that she received some very good news;

All biopsies were negative for cancer............

I had cervical cancer at 19 & though it's been nearly 20 years the word still sends chills through me when I hear it.

Excellent news, indeed. I don't understand cancer at all - who it strikes, what and when it strikes, and to ask why is of course senseless. Here from Michele's.

(written September of 2005) I have learned much in the last nine months. I have read that ovarian cancer whispers. I say it screams. It just needs someone to listen. The American Cancer Society statistics for ovarian cancer estimate that there will be 22,220 new cases and 16,210 deaths in 2005. This is a death rate FOUR TIMES that of breast cancer.Almost 70 percent of women with the common epithelial ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until the disease is advanced in stage. The 5-year survival rate for these women is only 15 to 20 percent. This is unacceptable. Women need to be made more aware of the symptoms, and doctors need to listen to their patients. Especially when the patient tells them that they fear they have ovca, as my mother did for almost a year before she was finally diagnosed. It’s so sad and senseless when a woman knows the symptoms but can’t get anyone to listen to what she is saying.
