In April 2020, I was diagnosed with Stage IIIC ovarian high grade serous carcinoma. In early May, I began chemotherapy and had 3 treatments. I no longer needed to highlight my hair, but lost my curls & all of my hair.  In July, I had a hysterectomy and was in the hospital several days longer than anticipated as I needed a blood transfusion.  In the fall, I had 3 more chemotherapy treatments and my last treatment was in October, 2020. 
In early January 2021, my CT scan revealed a recurrence of cancer & I have several masses. It is not curable.  Within a month, the CT scans showed the masses are growing, which is causing significant pain.  
I want to recognize all the ways people have & continue to support me on this journey. If you know me, you know it's so much easier for me to give help rather than be the recipient, I am learning.
Tomorrow I start a University of Wisconsin Clinical Trial, I'm very nervous and trying to be hopeful.
