Rowena’s Story (Ovarian Cancer)

Rowenas Ovarian Cancer StoryI was sick and didn’t want to admit it, but by the time I went to the doctor I was already at stage three.

I was rushed in for a hysterectomy, followed by seven months of chemo plus external and internal radiation.

I also went through several cat scans and tons of blood work, my body is pretty beat up.

But, I never lost hope. I just kept working, always had a smile and kept my attitude up.

I never would have gotten through it all without my son; I kept a positive attitude because of him.

It worked, I’m getting better.

It’s been a rough journey, but it’s all attitude.
