I Love the Christmas Season

Share on Facebook

Haven't bought a tree for awhile, I had lost the happiness that was once here in my home during the holidays, sadness had piggybacked in with no warning.

My front and back yard decorations used to compete with Disneyland at Christmas. I loved it! Inside was the same with homemade decorations Mom made, a beautiful flocked tree, the scent of cinnamon and apple spice permeating from the kitchen.

This year has now changed my entire thinking, I want to celebrate life, I want to celebrate my Savior's birthday. What changed? It started with the thought of dying from the ongoing fight with ovarian cancer, my heart was crying out why wasn't this nightmare over with yet? Eight months of this for me was enough I felt. After all the stage of OC was a one, well I recently was told the stage is three not one.

No more chemotherapy Yea! That alone almost killed me. it's on to radiation, I realized my conversation and deep feelings were very negative, I was not going to survive, " Prepare the Trust," get the will ready, make sure my kids knew my plans for the memorial service. It was getting very dark here in my world.

Much too dark for me, I'm normally a very up happy person, why would I let this destroy me? Satan loves to attack us in that manner, keep us down convince us there's no hope. "Wrong"

Our hope is in Jesus, He is the reason for the Season. Now my attitude has changed, I temporarily forgot, being so caught up with the latest reports.

The front yard is now lit up with trees, Angels, gifts and of course reindeer. The snow flocked tree is standing watch over my living room, decorations are being taken out of their dusting boxes.

I want to live again being thankful for what the Lord has given me, Christmas is such a special time. Family together again, lots of noise in the house, way too many dishes in the sink. How I love it!

Merry Christmas in Jesus

Ovarian Cancer

This year in America Ovarian cancer will strike an estimated 25,500 women, and kill more than 14,000! Ovarian cancer remains the deadliest gynecologic malignancy and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States.

What’s the problem? There is no early detector for Ovarian Cancer!

It’s been 25 years since a test for ovarian cancer was introduced to help diagnose this disease.
Should this get your attention, YES!
Should you do something about it? Yes!

I sailed along in life eating well, working out regularly, I didn’t smoke, didn’t have a drinking problem, only the occasional glass of wine. When one day I was told you have cancer. I have what! Wake up Sharon you have ovarian cancer.

It was found in the first stage, why? the early detection exams listed below found my cancer. I grant this there was a history in my family as my sister died from ovarian cancer. My question has always been this, I was examined for eight years before this was found.

Why can’t these tests be used as a regular, early detection tool for the discovery. All of the reports indicate that there is not substantial evidence to back this up. I am not an MD I am just a person who wants to do something about women suffering and dying unnecessarily. These women are not the only ones suffering, their family members are with them every step of the journey.

1a blood test of the serum CA 125 level (CA 125 is a high level of protein in the body)

2 transvaginal ultrasonography (TVU)

3 a pelvic exam

There is a new biomarker ...that has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for making a diagnosis of Ovarian cancer but only for monitoring the recurrence and progression of epithelial ovarian cancer. HE4 it will improve the ability to properly treat women in whom ovarian cancer has been diagnosed. The hope is it will be used in the future for an actual early detection in conjunction with the CA 125 serum.

Lets hope and pray that soon there will be the early detection break through we have been waiting for and end this nightmare.
