Day 6: Stories

I've read oodles of women's stories about their journey with ovarian cancer. I think those have made it all the more real for my mom and myself, and have also brought about a sense of unity... that women don't have to go through it alone.

There are resources and awareness - and keeping the message alive and going is what it takes to make sure that all women know the subtle symptoms of ovarian cancer.

This story about a woman named Stephanie Peterson is hard to read because she was so young, yet the story is a common one - you think the symptoms are symptoms of something else... until it is almost too late.
