    That I wanted to do all that I could to further my suvival

    Decision Point

    I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer in 2009. I went through chemo and everything else that I needed to do. Recently, in June, I was having a headache that after 3 weeks I couldn't take it anymore. I got some help from the doctor, did an MRI of my head and that is when they found the cancerous tumor. I have since had it removed, did my radiation and now move on to more chemo. There was no guarantee that they could kill the source completely but it would certainly prolong my life. I also tested positive for BRAC1 Genetic Test so I know that my cancer will return somewhere in the future and am hoping that it will hide it's ugly head for another 3 years or more
