Its now 10 years since I was diagnosed and only given 25% chance of living to 5 years and here I am! I have just finished fifth round chemo of weekly taxol and had very good results with CA125 gone down from 1200 to 20 and tumours reduced significantly to less than half their previous size. i managed fairly well on the regime apart from hair loss, blood in my nose and extra catarrh and towards the end some neuropathy in my fingertips and my nails look a bit of a mess but seem to be growing out OK. So I'm looking forward to a good summer with my lovely grandaughter Lily, a cruise and lots of fun times i hope. I'm also pleased to report that I did the race for life on sunday in glorious sunshine and have raised nearly £700. It hasn't been an easy road but between treatments I've been fit and well and these years really do feel very precious. Love to all Francesca x
