My sister was diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer in November of 2006. Unfortunately, it had spread to the peritoneum and they could only remove the omen-tum. She went through a trial chemo, then 2 more rounds of chemo, but it had spread too much and she passed away in July of 2008. She had just turned 63 the month before. Her oncologist said it was a classic case, but her GYN didn’t catch it soon enough, even though he drained too much fluid from her twice. That really should have been a very red flag. She was my only sibling and 2 years younger.
Thank you for allowing me to tell her story.
