I’m sitting in the chemo room (in my mermaid tail!)
in tears as I watch this video.
An incredible 16 year old woman who has survived stage three ovarian cancer…if you watch only one thing today let it be this…even if, like me, you are not a reality tv fan…it is so worth it!
I cry because I live her journey every day through my own ovarian cancer journey – the laughter, the love, the fear and the pain a late stage ovarian cancer diagnosis brings.
I cry because she is a much needed inspiration to me and to other warriors.
I cry because I saw her story on the Ellen Degeneres Show and know she was diagnosed at only 15 years old and, like me, she doesn’t have a genetic mutation.
But most importantly I cry with hope and joy.
Maybe, just maybe, this young, gorgeous, talented and inspirational woman will become a role model for other young women.
Maybe she will help raise awareness so that one day more women will be diagnosed early and able to survive this disease.
Maybe this incredible woman will save lives.
I cry with happiness for a better tomorrow.
I cry with love for a fellow warrior who, like me, sees the sunshine in the rain.
Let’s just all take a minute and think how wonderful and inspiring this woman really is.
Love and light, Fi xxx
Please remember a smear test CANNOT detect ovarian cancer! There is NO known screaming!
Diagnosis relies only on women being aware of the symptoms and being persistent with their gps.
