I heard today from an old friend, who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.She had the same story as most of us. bloating, frequent urination etc. What I am going to do, and I hope others will is this. I am going to write a letter campaign to women's magazines, local papers, and even my old university newsletter. I went to a woman's college, so if I can get them to print my story, all the grads and alumni will see it. I am so angry that most of the publicity is for breast cancer. I know it is more prevalent, but ovarian is more deadly. This is my new years resolution. To contact everyone I can think of, to get the word out. If I, or should I say we, can save one woman , than that can be our legacy. What do you all think?
