Ovarian Cancer Awareness
My mom, Rosemary Dean, was a healthy vegetarian, always brushed her teeth for two minutes in the morning and the night. We would go to the park or go shopping every weekend, and we would talk on the phone every day.
Then last year, 2015 she started not feeling well. She would get full quickly, she would have acid reflux, she had constant bloating, and she was tired all the time. We went from doctor to doctor trying to find the fix to make mom better. Finally after a scan they found she had an ovarian cyst. When we went to the hospital for surgery we weren’t thinking cancer, but it was. That was June.
We never gave up hope. Mom never complained, even through the horrible chemo cycles she had to endure.
We lost mom December 31, 2015. 6 months later, she was 66. In February 2016, I joined the OCAO for some way to help. So here I am helping the OCAO, get the information out there, know the symptoms, know your body! If just one person sees this and takes early action, then I will have done my part. I don’t want anyone else to lose their mom from Ovarian Cancer.
