Ovarian cancer is a disease in which, depending on the type and stage of the disease, malignant (cancerous) cells are found inside, near, or on the outer layer of the ovaries. An ovary is one of two small, almond-shaped organs located on each side of the uterus that store eggs, or germ cells, and produce female hormones estrogen and progesterone. (ovarian.org)
After three months of having medical issues, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer during what we thought was going to be a routine laparoscopic procedure. So, at 28 years old, I woke up from surgery to find out I had undergone a complete hysterectomy and would be starting chemo in two weeks.
