    Welcome to our What Next family.... I want to share my story. This cancer can be beat. I'd had a hysterectomy at 45. At 62. I was diagnosed with Stage IV `Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, The Gynecologic Oncologist Surgeon I'd been referred to, removed a 39 pound tumor and all the cancer he could see. When I woke he was there and told me what had been done.... I asked him how long I had.... he replied... "six months"..... WOW.... I told God how terrified I was... My fear left me instantly and I was totally peaceful. I asked the Lord to take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be. He did. Hear I am encouraging you.... That took place 12 years and 7 months ago.... I told the doctor I wanted to fight... He grinned and said..."You want to fight, then Carol.. we'll fight".. We did 18 months of Strong Chemo.... not easy but doable... First we did six 28 day cycles of I/V and I/P infusions. Then we did once a month i/V infusions for a year... Here I am... Still cancer free... I'm here if you'd like to ask questions,

    Betty Welcome to our WhatNext Family! I'm sorry you had to look for us, but so glad your found us. I was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer (age 62), I was referred to a Gynecological Oncologist Surgeon.. I'd had a hysterectomy at 45 but they'd left the ovaries) He removed a 39 pound tumor and then scraped every bit of cancer he could find from my urethra, my intestines, fat pads, etc. When I woke, and he'd told me my status... I asked him how long I had... he replied six months... I then (still half asleep) told God I was terrified. My fear left instantly.. I asked Him to take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be... Here I am... 12 years and 8 months later.....still cancer free. I had told my doctor I wanted to fight... his reply..."Carol you want to fight. we'll fight.... I did 18 months of I/V and I/P Strong Chemo... I'm still cancer free... THIS CAN BE BEAT!!!! Last May we celebrated my 75th birthday, We have eight children (blended) and they have given us 8 spouses.. who then together have supplied 20 grandchildren, who have given us six great grandchildren with number seven due the end of October.... May God bless you by leading you through this, as He did me. It's not a walk in the park, but it's so doable... One step at a time..

      Wow. You give me hope. I also rely on God and feel He is with me. However. You had a worst fight than me. You should talk to one of the ladies that wrote a question asking if anyone had beat stage IV. Being new I don’t remember her name. Maybe it is still there.
