Fighting and being a survivor of 4th stage epithelial ovarian cancer, this is the story of the journey of my recovery from the disease.
Cancer changes your life forever. My doctors weren’t very positive about my prognosis and the news weren’t encouraging. One doctor even told me I’d be in treatment forever – to live my life but basically get my affairs in order.
To say I was scared would be an understatement. I knew I was in for the biggest fight of my life.
I learnt what’s important and I learnt to have hope.
I learnt to prioritize and not waste time.
I learnt to be patient and make sure that I told people I love them.
I learnt that I was loved and I began to the good in people.
I was grateful to wake up every day and I learnt to be kinder.
I am fortunate to have had no evidence of the disease since my surgery, yet I shall be monitored closely for the rest of my life to ensure that I will be around to see my children grow up.
As a cancer survivor I now see life through a special lens, and even though it may sound crazy, I am grateful for these special glasses. I try to always keep in mind my favorite quote, “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
