Hi all, I was diagnosed stage 3C in Sept 09. Initially I took the treatment, told my family I'd be fine and we all had to stay positive. I recurred 4 months after finishing treatment, have now had 2 differetn chemos and I'm now on weekly taxol/carbo. Decided to involve my family a bit more some months ago and my 17 year old daughter has been absolutely fabulous. She set about raising funds and doing a skydive for Ovarian Cancer Action, and so far she has raised over £4000!!! She is terrific, it has excelled her, informed her, and informed many of her friends and family of this horrible disease. I am so motivated by her, I've just got to get better!! She has had none school uniform days at schools wherby the pupils have brought in a £1, she had a disco at off school premises for 6th formers, she had a Indian buffet last night at our local indian restaurant raising £870. I was becoming absorbed in my treatment, but this focus has made me more absorbed in her efforts!! Definitely worth a try and will help an excellent cause!!!
