Happy 2018

This year we can all hope and pray for the next, best-cure for ovarian cancer, I have to say Immunotherapy " Keytruda" is easy and not at all difficult to receive. As in any treatment it takes time to receive, not anything close to chemotherapy. For me I have received great results, I keep praying for the day my Pet Scan returns negative. I'll share my latest results, when I started this program I had 5 tumors, two in my neck another next to a lung and 2 in the abdomen.

After 1 year of treatments there are only 2 tumors the size of a pea in my neck, nothing by my lung and a very small one in the abdomen. That's progress, I feel very healthy, so far I have missed the flu bug and any cold running around.

I'm always looking into a way I can bring awareness to Ovarian Cancer, this morning I went to a book fair. I've been writing a fictional book for a couple of years. It was time I took this further, time for the serious part of publishing. It appears writing is the easiest. Wow I'm learning! While I was there one of the authors asked what else I've written, I started to say nothing then remembered I blog on the Ovarian Cancer web site. That's writing.

IDEA !! Why can't I publish a book on my blogs, others do it, so can I. Next best move was an all out attack on my web site, I did not realize I had written so many Blogs over the last 4-5 years. There's my book YEA!

Wish me well and please keep me in your prayers.

In Jesus,
Sharon Leigh

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.
