new HPV article re: vaccination for women of ALL ages/circumstances

I found this interesting, especially the last statement in the article. I plan on showing this to my gyn-onc in june.

HPV has caused me so much turmoil. After a lifetime of normal paps, I had one come back cancer (yes, actual cancer not SIL). Fortunately, it was over-read. Two cones later, I was clear for 1O-11 yrs. Had hyster for other reasons in 1/09. Now I am VAIN 1 with active, evil HPV again. So 10-11 years all good, now my vagina is under attack. I am wondering if it could be a new infection or the old one rearing its ugly head.

Possible new treatment for ovarian cancer

I post this in hopes that it will help someone.

Today the New York Times has a story about a drug approved to treat kidney cancer that is showing promise in delaying recurrence of ovarian cancer by six months or more. The story is here: The story also discusses some other drugs that may be available soon, as wells as issues related to so-called "maintenance therapy."

National Run/Walk to End Women's Cancer

The first weekend in November is the National Race/Walk to End Women's Cancer in DC. It's a 6K race or 1 mile walk

When I registered for the race I saw lots of Ovarian cancer teams but none that seemed to be for Uterine cancer. So I started a team called "Just Peachy Keen" and left it open for others to join. Since we do have a lot of uterine cancer survivors here, I thought I'd let you all know in case anyone else might be thinking of coming and would like to join the team too! There's other cool stuff going on, Saturday there is an all-day conference for survivors, and Saturday night the band N.E.D. is performing....they are a band that is comprised of all gyn oncologists, they have 2 CDs out and are now even the subject of a new documentary....and my own oncologist is one of the lead singers! They are having a screening of the movie in Bethesda the Tuesday following the Race.

If you are going and would like to try to meet up with me, just drop me a PM! I certainly welcome anyone that would just like to sponsor me too, again, just PM me and I'll drop you the link. I've never done anything like this before and fund raising is definitely not my forte, but hoping I can at least raise enough to feel like the trip was worthwhile! I often tell people that my doctor saved my life...but really it was the cutting edge research he was doing that enabled him to find the extent of the cancer I had when it would otherwise have been missed so I definitely am passionate about both raising awareness of these cancers as well as the importance of funding research.
