I am very excited that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month! Not only is it my birthday month, I am a ovarian cancer survivor! Treated at Sloan Kettering in NY by wonderful physicians and nurses! Afraid that I wouldn’t see my precious son grow-up, not only have I seen him grow to be a fine young man, I will see him married on October 10th of this year! My family and friends were an amazing support system. We are all very thankful, as we knew it wasn’t a common occurrence for ovarian cancer. I am so very happy to have enjoyed all the days, months, years I have been blessed with! Thank you God!
