Yesterday I was at Hammersmith Hospital to see the oncologist. I'd been contacted by Imperial Health (Charing Cross, Hammersmith hospital) and asked if I would donate blood so they could run my DNA to have a look at any mutations for this project. They aim to collect a million donations from cancer victims, particularly Ovarian cancer; what they're hoping for the future is that they may be able to predict from various non genetic and genetic mutations in the DNA whether someone is now vulnerable to getting cancer, and try to take evasive action before it actually happens, or otherwise, at a much earlier stage.
I am, so far, the only one with non small cell neuroendocrine ovarian cancer to contribute to the project, so they were particularly pleased with me for agreeing to go ahead; which I did, yesterday, in the hope it might be useful to others in future. I've no idea if other hospitals are part of the same project, but I certainly feel its worth contributing if you're able to, the more research and knowledge about this horrible disease the better.
