I wasn’t feeling good for over a year. They kept diagnosing me with colitis. I was taking medicine for it, changed my eating habits however nothing seemed to help. The pain in my stomach was getting so bad I would double over. In February 3, 2011 I went to allegheny General hospital and they told me and my boyfriend that I had 3 stage going into fourth. The surgeon said I had a mass on my left ovary and the tube was covered. If it wasn’t for the staff and my oncologist Dr Jane Raymond I probably wouldn’t be here today! I would like to thank my boyfriend and his mother for all the support they gave me through this. My family and friends still support me in keeping me going. Love you all!
