Ruth Is Always Right!!!!!

…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

I second that ViperV. Ruth rang me in the early days post diagnosis and was so reassuring and encouraging. Her words have proved true and I'm deeply indebted to her. Annie


And I'll third it ! I had my magazine to day too and have a quick scan- bit surprised by the Xmass card page- bit late now- suppose I could get some for next year!

Happy Xmass Ovacome! Anne


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the staff at Ovacome.

Many thanks for your help.

Can I add my Thanks to Ruth as well, she was there for me whenever I have had the need to ring up. Kind calming words of wisdom, made me feel so much more in control. Wishing the Ovacome Team a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well. Thank you All. Love Trish xx


Me too! Ruth is so approachable and always has time for us. The support from the Ovacome team is brilliant. Thanks, Vicky, for reminding us

Love Wendy xx


I totally agree with all the above. A very Happy Christmas to Ruth, Susan and all the Ovacome team.

Love Mary xx


Ruth and Susan have been a source of strength at times when I hardly any. Thank you to both of them from my heart and to everyone at Ovacome. I too got the magazine yesterday and again remembered that though women who have this disease are a marginalised and vulnerable group, they do have people out there fighting their corner.

Ruth is a very experienced, perceptive and wise woman and in difficult times her advice to me has been invaluable
