I'm in my fourth year as an ovarian cancer survivor. I have had several recurrences and am learning how to treat this as a chronic disease. Ovarian cancer is a neglected cancer in terms of attention and research.

Hi Kerry, (and others!)
I agree that ovarian cancer is an important issue that deserves to be addressed as well. This cause is dedicated primarily for breast cancer, but here is a cause that is focused on ovarian cancer. http://www.causes.com/causes/317-ovarian-cancer-awareness

My choice is "Phoenix Tears and Run from the Cure" Please people look these up on your computer...also Prof. Robert Melamede..... There is a CURE for cancer...I'm sure you've all heard the stories of Rick Simpson in Springhill NS....well it is TRUE. The oil that comes from the Marijuana plant DOES cure Cancer! It's not Hemp oil but HASH OIL that is made from the buds of the plant. We have many people in our circle of friends that are using it as we speak to Cure their lung cancer, skin...

It's not Hemp oil but HASH OIL that is made from the buds of the plant. We have many people in our circle of friends that are using it as we speak to Cure their lung cancer, skin cancer, diabetic ulcers....PLEASE do yourself and you loved ones a favor by going to these sites and reading the material. Please...if I had known about this in 1988 we could have saved my sisters life and a baby niece...It won't hurt to look it up. A good friend of ours is only 48 and was diagnosed with cancer last year...she did the prescribed chemo but 6 new tumors showed up in her liver. She started taking the oil in January this year and the Cancer is almost gone...her physician is shocked...They only gave her a few months to live.. She has a husband, an 18 yr old daughter and a good govm't job in Ontario and now she is soon to be totally Cancer Free. Please...the Govm't does not want people to heal themselves and make us criminals to save our own lives....because it is illegal to use the oil...how sad is that. Just check it out...ask 10 people if they've ever heard of Rick Simpson and the oil....I'm sure you'll find that many people know already....thanks for reading this.. I normally don't write like this but it is so important..Our family Dr. knew about it but says he's not allowed to tell his patients because it is illegal...and the pharmaceutical companies would loose BILLIONS of $$$$$ if we were allowed to heal ourselves...thanks..:)

until I got cancer of the larynx last year I had never heard anything, or seen any fundraising for head and neck cancers.
