UPDATE JUNE 2021:  Spring 2021 has brought several occasions of pleural effusions (fluid around my right lung), which have been painful and concerning.  Scans of many kinds have been inconclusive, but an abdominal biopsy in June shows cancer cells like those of the original tumor.  We resume drug infusions once a month for six cycles.  Perhaps it will be easier this time.  

UPDATE AUGUST 2020:  Got the all-clear from my surgeon.  Scans look completely normal, and drug therapy is done for now.  If we can get genetic testing results (complicated because few cancer cells were available from surgery), we may have more to do.  But good for now!!  Celebrate with us.

We are starting a voyage to survive metastatic ovarian cancer, just diagnosed in December 2019.  We know it will be heavy sledding ahead for us.  There's no way to make it sound easier, except that your love and care keep us buoyed up.  Thank you for visiting!  Jane and Larry
