I am a stage IIIc ovarian cancer survivor for 13 hrs. I have recently dramatically changed my eating habits. I feel better and have dropped 70 lbs. I know I have lessened my chances of getting cancer again.
That is 13 years!

Moni, yes I have gone gluten free. My "gut" issues are better.
Good for you, Linda! Keep going and remember that many prayers will be said for you.
Congratulations on 13 years and I'm glad you feel better... My mom was just diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer May 2011 and she went though Chemotherapy and lost over 100 pounds during the process. Currently she is cancer-free and I'm very thankful..
We've never met, but I'm happy for you tho

I lost my son to cancer at easter 2011 , it was so heartbreaking not just because he was my son but the terrible way , people with that horible illness suffer.
I have had many family members go through the struggle of fighting cancer and it takes it's toll on not just the person battling the disease, but the family members standing by trying to help with the fight. Some have won the battle and some have not. We need to find a cure and make this world better for everybody.
Some of my family and friends have been afflicted with cancer in its many forms. Some have never smoked but were exposed to smokey athmospheres. All were stressed individuals who had great difficulity in accepting the injustices of life. Stress and trauma are fundamental factors. Smoking is mere a contributing factor while posing as a stress-relief factor.

All of my mother's sibling that died, died of cancer as did my mother and father. My father-in law died of pancreatic Cancer. I have also worked many years with oncology patients. I have been surrounded by friends and family who circumcised to this disease.
I would like to see a global collaboration on cancer prevention and early diagnosis well-funded and well staffed -a dream team of clinical and experimental oncologists. Unfortunately, because of the very high frequency of the disease cancer research has become big business, performed in the most part in a hyper-competitive atmosphere. There needs to be much more cooperation not only btween indivdual laboratories but also between cancer research agencies and institutions worldwide.
Living in this modern day world is cancerous alone, industrial pollution is largely to blame, our air is full of fine particulates we cant see, this goes into the blood stream and that's it.
These articles are very useful and create a lot of awareness.
My Father died of Bladder cancer last year on March 1st. Smoking is the #1 cause of bladder cancer. He quit after having a heart attack at age 40, but the doctor said the cumulative damage was already done. Bladder cancer doesn't kill you quick, it's long and expensive and you suffer. Took him almost 5 years to pass away. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I hate cigarettes.
