"I'm 17 years old and was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer this
past February 2006. Luckily, they were able to remove just my
cantaloupe size tumor and one ovary - so one day I can still be a
mom if I want to. I'm in my 1st of 3 chemo cycles. It is most
definitely not a fun process, but I haven't gotten sick or anything
so I guess it could be worse. The past couple days, however; I have
notice my hair beginning to fall out, so I'm a little scared about
that. My family, friends, and my boyfriend are extremely supportive
though, so I'll be fine. My boyfriend is actually going to be the
one who shaves my head - then I'm going to shave his. My high school
graduation and senior prom all follow the end of my treatment, so I
do have something to be looking forward to and to be striving for.
I'm planning to attend college in the up coming fall as well. So
even though this Cancer caused a big bump in my otherwise smooth
sailing life, I' m not going to let it stop me!!!"

Chick - "I
picked the name "Nature Chick" because I am a tree hugger,
love gardening and am in the process of restoring woodland overcome
with invasive weeds. I saved all my hair that fell out during
treatment for breast cancer and this spring will scatter it out in
the woods for the birds to use to make nests. I love this website!"
Chick (She scrubs the floors, then turns into a princess!) -
"I had a major melt-down
this morning ... chemo brain has taken over my life. Forgot a
meeting was happening at 10 am, despite the fact I'd looked at the
notation on the calendar only an hour before - this is the second
time THAT has happened this week and its only Wednesday.
Found myself studying a list unable to recall if I'd actually
emailed these folks asking for their reports ... or was this last
year's list that I'd updated and had yet to contact anybody??
Can't tell you how many times I walked into the kitchen and stood
there, wondering what the hell I came in for...
Desperation set in. Where is my memory? Of course we go to the
internet for answers ... Found your website when I typed in chemo
brain. Ya'll made me laugh. It helps to know others are in this with
Thanks and love!"
