…and so is her new colleague, Susan. Nearly four years ago now, Ruth was the first voice of sanity and sense that I heard, as I stumbled around the early hedges of the cancer maze. She listened, called me back, explained patiently, listened some more. I thanked her and said goodbye. I did exactly what she told me to do.
Her advice was invaluable at the time, and she was utterly right in every single thing she said. She gave me hope for the first time in the 6 months since I'd first been told that I probably had ovarian cancer.
To survive cancer, I think the first thing you need to have is hope.
I've spoken to Ruth a few times since, and her colleague Susan. It's Christmas, and the Ovacome magazine just popped thru' my letter box. I haven't read it yet, but I will soon. I just wanted to thank Ovacome, Ruth, Susan and everyone else who works or volunteers for them, for all the good things they have done for me over the years. Best wishes to all. Vxxx
