About me

Welcome to Cancer Emotions!  I’m very glad you are here with me!  I was first diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer in 2006.  My cancer returned in 2009.  I have been on some type of continuous treatment since the beginning.  I am one of the lucky survivors and have lived with no evidence of disease for much of this time.   I have chosen to be very active in making choices about my treatment and in doing everything possible to help others.  It has been a challenge physically, spiritually and emotionally and I have seen so many other survivors travel this difficult road.  By far, the hardest part has been the emotional path…learning how to live without constant anxiety, fear, and doubt.  It has taken so much hard work but I have been able to go beyond that and live my life with gusto!   My promise to you is that I will be sincere and open my heart and mind and tell you exactly what I am feeling/have experienced. Please remember that these thoughts are just mine…all based on my own experience or that of others.  By sharing them with you my hope  is that we will learn together how to live with fun and much joy.

    I’m so glad you are doing this Patsy. It is very difficult to loose a fellow “survivor” to cancer. For me, emotional happenings are magnified. Even everyday things.
    When something in by body doesn’t feel right, I get it checked out, partly a from fear but also just being proactive. Over all, I just trust in the Lord for He’s had a plan for me since I was formed in the womb. My prayer is to help others, as you are, and to give the glory to God.
    Great to see you last month. Willamina
