This photo in NZ shortly after completion of first battle with Ovarian Cancer. Originally diagnosed in 2012 with Stage 3C Serous Papillary Ovarian Cancer (high grade) . Immediate surgery removed a grapefruit sized tumor and multiple cancerous lymph nodes-followed by 16 rounds of chemotherapy. I had Carboplatin and Taxol. Round 2- I had surgery to remove cancerous lymph nodes. Four weeks later, I started 25 rounds of radiation to the peri-aortic lymph node area. Four weeks after that, I began my current chemotherapy regimen of Carboplatin, Gemzar, and Avastin. My latest PET scan shows #NED (No Evidence of Disease)! One year of treatment on Avastin and then quarterly follow-ups. I am officially a TWO TIME SURVIVOR!
