Oprah and a Plan to be Heard

Especially if you have ovarian cancer, the word is out--on June 27 please e-mail www.oprah.com with your story--there's going to be a "bombard Oprah" day--maybe if enough people e-mail they'll listen and do a story on ovarian.

Now I am NOT leaving out those of you with cervical, vulvar, vaginal, or uterine cancer--Sept. is also YOUR awareness month. E-mail stories--maybe, just maybe--they'll hear us. Spread the word.

Yes, I'll do it. (And thanks for the offer of the reminder, otherwise, I'd find myself on July 27 thinking that I had to do something!)

Remind me too!

This is great! Finally we can all unite and maybe Oprah will do a special show on "silent killers" or women's gyno cancers! You'll have to remind me too as I forget everything these days. I wish someone would have told me about ovarian cancer - everyday I think of all the symptons I had but didn't pick up on because I thought they were minor "monthly" ailments (like indigestion, nausea, pelvis discomfort, bloating,etc). I remember getting a checkup at my gyno a few years ago, I was in a panic because my periods were irregular (I was always regular) and my dad had just passed awat from cancer. My gyno told me I was stressed due to the death and "out of my mind" -when I went in this past December with my back pain I asked him if I was "still out of my mind". He was somber and had tears in his eyes when he replied "No, I think it's serious". People have to hear about this disease (as much as breast cancer).

I'd like to join in, too. (Does it matter if I am not American as this is for the Oprah show?) It is my understanding that at least 25000 women in The States are diagnosed with OVCA each year, so it is time for a show on it!

Oprah and a Plan to be Heard


Not more than two weeks ago, I emailed Oprah (again) asking her to do a show on endometrial cancer. That must have been at least the fourth time I've emailed over the past several years making the same or similar requests. Sometimes I limit my suggestion to endometrial cancer, other times I request that she do a show on all gynecologic cancers.

Hopefully, my latest email will still be in her "in-basket" when the other email messages start to arrive on Sunday!

Good luck with your latest effort.

I'll do it. One question though. I went to Oprah's website and to e-mail us. Which e-mail address are we sending the stories too??
There are so many e-mail addresses.
