My Story

On March 28th, 2011 Leah received the news that she may have ovarian cancer.  She had been having "stomach" issues for the past month or so.  These were attributed to: a change in diet, an ulcer, a urinary tract infection, constipation &/or menopause. After two visits to Urgent Care Leah visited her primary doctor who ordered a CT Scan. The results showed an ovarian/pelvic mass, which was affecting one of her kidneys.  A total hysterectomy followed as well as many other tests to determine the source of her cancer.  Read more about Leah's story in her journal entries.
