What to do with my life after latest bout with ovarian cancer stage III?

A lot of thought goes into this, I'm sure it's the same for you. I ask myself repeatedly why me? Why am I still here? What do I do with the rest of my life? Why is it that I ask why? Maybe because I lost my beloved sister to ovarian cancer and I'm still here. I felt she had so much to offer the world and what did I have to offer? (terrible personal criticism). Why do we have to be so hard on ourselves!

I have reached a couple of disappointing times that I really have to get over, it's not good to keep looking back. Forward is the only way. I believe that my God has other directions for me since He knows I love serving Him.

I think what has hurt me is in the last 10 year, through the grace of God, I started two international business's. Both of them were very successful, until that second diagnosis of cancer. This last round of treatments almost killed me. I was compelled to turn over both enterprises allowing others to take over the reins. The results were disastrous, businesses cannot be run properly with a hostile board of directors. (I'm sharing way too much).

I am strong though, I'm a tough fighter, I don't give up easily, if God is for us who can be against us! I love that scripture. Although I still feel ravaged by this cancer the results are good, but because I am a woman, I wish my skin would've held up better. Lol

I'm enjoying my friends, entertaining, I've taken several trips this year with two more coming later this year. Getting more involved in politics, which I find interesting. My goal is to continue on with fundraising directed at research for ovarian cancer.

Most importantly I want to teach and speak on the wonders of our Lord Jesus Christ. I especially love traveling to share with women. It seems everything I do is always focused on women. I feel we women respond with our hearts a lot faster than men.

Keep me in prayer please, I pray for beautiful blessings on you all.

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.
