Hi All, i have been dignosed with stage 4 Ovarian Cancer last year and attended my first Ova Care Patient Day yesterday in Galway hosted by OvaCare. I had signed up for a few before that but was unable to make it and to be honest was a little scared by the notion of being overwhelmed by information.
Well, I should have gone sooner , what a amazing host ( Ovacare) and the women and men in the group well very welcoming, honest, open, informative and above all safe. I really enjoyed and engaged because it was a instant feeling of OvaCares motto ' Together we are stronger '. The speakers varied from the patients stories, two very brave, honest and strong women with very different stories and very different journeys to the doctors in the field of ovarian cancer. The Doctors spoke the language of medicine and spoke with facts, knowledge and above all experience, I was pleasantly noting the audience engaging and lapping up the complex and sometime upsetting information that was presented and dialoguing with the doctors using the medical language and understanding of complexity of ovarian cancer.
Over all I have to say that I am delighted that OvaCare existes for women all over Ireland.
Thank you so much Ovacare team
