Since my wife Sandy's journey with ovarian cancer began in January 2017, we have been blessed with everyday Angels. They are family and friends who offer their love and support. They are her doctors and nurses of OSU and the Stephanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center who are with her for treatment. They are the pharmacists whom we never see but are there to mix her chemo cocktails. They are all the individuals of the OSU ER who offer her immediate treatment when she has an elevated temperature. They are those individuals who keep us in their prayers. We appreciate all the Angels who are sharing this journey with us.
We know everyone has their own battles and their own journeys. If your donations are best given elsewhere we understand. We do however hope you take the time to educate all the females in your life by making them aware of the symptoms of ovarian cancer.
The symptoms should not be ignored. There are many signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The most common symptoms include: Bloating Pelvic or abdominal pain. Trouble eating or feeling full quickly. Urinary symptoms such as urgency (always feeling the need to go) or frequency (having to go often). Other symptoms of ovarian cancer can include: Fatigue, Upset stomach, Back pain, Pain during intercourse, Constipation, Menstrual cramps, Abdominal swelling with weight loss.
Please don't forget to acknowledge the Angels in your life.
