Someday …

Someday, fewer than 75% of ovarian cancer patients will discover their cancer before it reaches stage 3 or 4.

Someday, those patients will have a lower than 70% rate of recurrence, and higher than 30% rate of survival.

Someday, there will be fewer ovarian cancer patients because women will know they are at risk for ovarian and other cancers before it develops.

Our quest is to make that “someday” today.

From Teal It Up Ovarian Cancer Foundation Founder, Jan Coggins

“First of all, everyone is a survivor — a survivor of something! Life may differ in the specific tools we use in handling adversity. As an ovarian cancer survivor, I thought hiking 100 miles after debulking surgery and 18 hard weeks of harsh chemotherapy was crazy — but it was my way of beating cancer right back. That was what I needed to do after my diagnosis.

“You may get pure joy from holding a grandchild. The point is that everyone will treat adversity differently, and more than likely, that is what will keep you going stronger. Life itself is full of joy and full of challenges. We have to find our way of handling both. At the end of the day, I believe in counting blessings — not blisters (so to speak)!”
