"I will continue to communicate my blurb to every single news organization which continues to report solely on breast cancer. "If breast cancer is the ying then ovarian cancer is the yang. To report solely on breast cancer in the age of Angelina Jolie and the discovery of the BRCA genes is not only irresponsible, it’s infuriating. Next time please don’t follow everyone else’s lead, set the example.”
"I wish people knew about the symptoms, the seriousness of the disease and overall just felt more comfortable talking about ovaries and gyn stuff in general. I've heard so many stories of women not truly knowing their family history because their relatives called it 'lady cancer' or something else. After my second diagnosis my genetic mutation was upgraded from a "variant of unknown significance" to BRCA2. I found that almost all the information was geared towards breast cancer. I also found that there was so many more resources for breast cancer patients, Ovarian cancer needs more!"
