Gina555 has passed away

Gina555 has passed away

I am sorry to say that my lovely girlfriend, known to you as Gina555, died at two minutes past noon on Wednesday 21st September at Royal Trinity Hospice, near Clapham Common. I stroked her hand, told her I loved her and thanked her for coming into my life. I am devastated. We had been partners for eight and a half years. As you may know, Gina, had been fighting ovarian cancer for four and a half years. She asked me before she passed away to make available her cancer diaries and, when I have edited these in line with her instructions, I will make them available to you on this site. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone on this site for their support. I know it helped Gina enormously to be able to talk with others going through the same terrible experiences. She learned a lot and was less afraid, knowing you were on the battlefield as well. Good luck and love to everyone in the Ovacome community.

  • Much love to you Ronnie. G and I first met after surgery in the hospital ward in 2012. On this forum since she has always been very supportive to me ( and others) and also offered information about interesting and relevant research into this disease. I will miss our connection, her perspective and her humour, even through our difficult times. A lovely woman, whom I am very glad I met.

  • Absolutely lovely picture of G that you posted with your news

  • Hi Ronnie.. I'm very sorry to hear about Gina. This is a very hard disease to cope with. I find the support I receive here incredibly important to my life and I know a lot of others do too.

    I'm so glad you were able to be with her.

    Sending my condolences. .. Xxx

  • So sorry too hear this sad news

  • Dear Ronnie,

    Thank you for letting us know this very sad news. This is a horrible disease. It sounds as if you helped to give G the best possible end. I met her first at my first members' day and it was so nice to talk to her as a new girl. It was great she made it to this year's one too. You posted such a beautiful photo of her. She seemed such a gentle soul. What a nice way to remember her.

    Thinking of you at this time.

I haven't been on this forum long as only recently been diagnosed but I already know it is a special place and a huge source of strength and information for those of us going through this. It sounds like Gina was a big part of this and I will look forward to reading her diaries when you have edited them. That is wonderful she left in your capable hands. At this moment I send you love, peace and strength and hugs. As others have said, that photo is beautiful and know she is now at peace as well as always with you wishing you happineness

  • Ronnie I am so sorry to hear about your lovely girlfriend Gina. It's difficult to say any words of comfort to you. I do know from reading your words that Gina knew she was loved and cared for so much. When I looked at the photo I just saw an angel walking towards a beautiful light. May she rest in peace .

  • I'm so sorry to hear about Gina, take comfort in the fact she can rest easy and will still be helping those who follow her with her words from the diaries.

    All the best to you

  • So sorry for your loss... Rest in peace Gina you have your wings no more pain🌹

  • So sad to read ....such sorrow . I never met Gina but the history of her disease , and her diaries will provide evidence of how foul a disease this is , and perhaps will nudge research further .

    Thinking of you now , and hope you remain part of the community as long asyou need support from those that understand your part in her journey .

    You did all you could .

  • Dear Ronnie,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know that Gina has gone. I'm so very sorry to hear this news. Gina was brilliant on this forum - she helped loads of us by her willingness to share bits of research as well as her own situation. I bet those cancer diaries will be able to help many, many more people in the future and what a magnificent gift to leave.

    It's a time when a person has a heavy heart and I hope there is a little space for you somewhere to be kind to yourself; you too have been carrying a heavy load and you are allowed to feel whatever you feel.

    All best to you.

  • Hi Ronnie

    So sad for your loss of Gina i lost my beautiful brave Vivien nearly 5 months ago.Even though i think of her all the time it does get less painful.I still get waves of sadness and anger i am slowly coming to terms with life without her.Hope you have got good friends and family around you for support.


  • Sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you at such a sad time. Her suffering is now over.

  • I am so sorry for your loss and sad to hear of Gina's passing. I didn't meet her but often read her posts and she seemed a lovely lady, also found many of the helpful links re new treatments etc very helpful. The photo is beautiful and I hope treasured memories like this one help you find light in the darkness of this time.

  • Ronnie......I am so sorry to read of Gina's passing. Your note was so lovely and heartfelt. I feel as much for those who love us, as for those of us who actually have this unrelenting disease. Sometimes, I actually feel worse for my husband, even though I keep a smile on my face.

  • I'm sad to hear of your loss and wish you much strength and sympathy. Lovely image of Gina.



  • Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments. I'm sure Gina would be overwhelmed by your warmth and appreciation (she was a very modest person) and I thank you for your words of support for me as well. The first two days were the worst. A kind of madness gripped me when I realized I would never speak with her again, at least in this life. I didn't want to live in the world without my brave and gentle soulmate. Family and friends rallied round and helped me through that darkness. When the funeral is over (I'm still organizing it) I will look through her diaries and make sure they are published on the Ovacome site. I hope you find them helpful. The last four and a half years have been an emotional roller-coaster and, having seen every twist and turn of this terrible disease, I just want to say how much I admire your superhuman courage and strength of character in the face of such adversity. Much love - Ronnie

  • Thanks Ronnie. Gina will be greatly missed by many. She made a lasting impact on this forum and elsewhere. Hugs x
