“I am 33 years old. Two years ago - in the midst of trying to conceive my first child with my husband of two and a half years - I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Through surgery and chemotherapy, I reached remission several months later. However, my cancer recurred in April of 2005.
This blog chronicles my cancer experience and my infertility. If I'm lucky enough to somehow beat the odds, it will also one day chronicle my journey to motherhood, ovaries be damned.”
Sadly on May 12th 2006 the author passed away. Her blog is due to be removed from the internet shortly so have a read whilst you still can.
A particular favourite of mine was the author’s ‘Reflections on a Yellow Jersey’ in which she considers Lance Armstrong’s portrayal of his ‘fight against cancer’ and debates how helpful this actually is to a public where one in ten people already believe that "all you need to beat cancer is a positive attitude".
