God why did this happen? Braca 1! so unfair. Ovarian Cancer stage 3c. It was diagnosed on my sons birthday, he was 9yrs old. I had chemo/surgery/chemo. Its 2 years now cancer free and I live and hope to see my son grow up. The statistics are killers. Only 5 years. I look and hope to see more survival rates. but there is none. Everytime I see a doctor or have to tell sameone I had this dreadful disease I see the torment in their eyes and how sorry they are for me. I dont want sorry I want a cure! I have a daughter who is 20yrs and too scared to tell her about braca1.
