's to all of you!

{{Karen}} Way to go gal! Your spunk always puts a smile on my face.

{{Susan}} As always! You amaze me!

I'm trying to search through my foggy brain but I remember seeing a segment last fall on the Today show regarding raising money for ovarian cancer research. If I'm not mistaken I believe it was Sandra Bernhart (sp?) that was advocating more $$ needed to be raised for research and they were interviewing her in preparation for a big fund raiser in CA I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong, the is certainly present today.

Anyway, I'm in FULL agreement with you all here, I know BC is the leading cancer and affects a HUGE number of women and this is what I lost my mother to. However, I'm with you, there needs to be more focus brought to the issue of ALL Gyn cancers not to mention ALL cancers in general.

Many {{Hugs}} to all of you! I hope and pray that sometime in the very near future, no one will have to face this battle.

thank you

To susan and hurriedh (and all of you that contributed to this thread). I have often vented on here to you about my fear of my brachytherapy. It does seem like most peoples impression of cervical/vaginal cancer is that they just "freeze it off" and our cancer really does not count as "REAL" cancer. I am finally over my pneumonia, and I just got my next surgery and radiation scheduled for my vagina. I am 30 and I have already had a upper vaginectomy after my hyst because my smear came back abnormal. Then came the biopsy before the vaginectomy. I was in shock too find out I still had cancer, and what do you tell people? My son's orthopedic doctor asked me in front of my kids "what kind of cancer do you have?" I could have kicked him. People need to become more informed and not be so ignorant. I have found the worse people I have had to deal with are my friends, who love to be in denial about the fact that I have to get my vagina radiated. No one wants to deal with our "kind" of cancer. It makes me sad, so thanks ladies for all the inspiration.
