    Other Care (Psychosocial): I am so grateful for the healing services provided by my local Cancer Support Community. I am enjoying weekly Yoga and occasional survivor lunches sponsored by the Ovarian Cancer Alliance, which are always an inspiration. I also found a great therapist.

    Celebration (Remission): Just had my 6 month check in with the oncologists and cancer markers indicate I am still in remission. Yay!

    Loss (Relationship ): A by-product of my cancer journey was the breakdown of my relationship with my new husband. I have learned that major illness changes people, both the person with cancer and those close to them. The good news is that cancer survivorship has given me the gift of choice and the courage to move forward with the life that is best for me.

      I feel this sweetie!! My husband became distant after my cancer diagnosis. I always worked and was very active. Cancer took that all away from me. I thought we were going to divorce. Somehow we made it through, but many couples do not. Cancer changes people and their spouses do not know how to respond. I hope the best for you!!!

      I thank you for sharing- I’m in a going on a 10 year relationship with a man I am supposed to marry in 2020 but a week after my 1st round of Chemo something happened and we had 3 weeks of I am not sure what but I think he was trying
      not to show any emotions because he thought that would help me be stronger- he was wrong because I felt he just didn’t care....I feel that sometimes it harder on the family than the ones diagnosed! You have to have emotional support to get you through- stay strong and my prayers are with you!
