World Ovarian Cancer Day (Video)

2 Comments

Today is World Ovarian Cancer Day and it’s all about raising awareness for ovarian cancer symptoms.

Coincidently I find myself in hospital today waiting for my surgery tomorrow to remove all visible cancer! So, to mark the day I’m taking the opportunity to share a video with you about my symptoms which led to my stage four ovarian cancer diagnosis in January.

If you would like to get involved you are invited to wear teal today to show support for women who, like me, are affected by ovarian cancer. Teal is the colour for ovarian cancer in the same way pink is the colour for breast cancer.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the symptoms I discuss in the video. Ovarian cancer is not just caused by the BRCA gene and can affect women of any age as I am evidence to.

You can also donate to allow Macmillan nurses to support more women in future.

Thank you!

Love and light, Fi xx

  1. Good luck tomorrow…I had the op in January after 4 chemos too and I am pleased to report all went well and I recovered from it well. Having 2 further chemos after the op, well that is another story! I hope it is a big success and will be keeping everything crossed for you. Have just discovered your blog and have been hooked on it all day…have experienced very similar thoughts and feelings, you have a lovely way of saying what many of us cancer patients are feeling. Will be awaiting your next post now post op! Carol xxx
