My mum was the most courageous, graceful, patient, loving person to walk this earth.

When she told us she had ovarian cancer, it was the first time we'd ever heard of it. So, we launched into questions... Did they catch it early? No. Could she just have surgery to get rid of it? No. Would she need chemo? Yes. Was it terminal? We don’t know (parent code for, ‘It’s not looking good’).

Mum fought hard for almost five years. When she passed away, she was at home, in her favourite chair, holding my hand. I swear I saw her smile as she slipped away – I’m sure she was headed to an almighty welcoming party thrown by Dad and Melly.

Ovarian cancer is THE most common cause of death from a gynaecological cancer. Every year approximately 1,600 Australian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, most of them with an advanced stage of the disease. Why? Because there is no early detection test. A pap smear doesn't detect ovarian cancer.

Women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer report four types of symptoms most frequently:

1. Abdominal or pelvic pain.
2. Increased abdominal size or persistent abdominal bloating.
3. Needing to urinate often or urgently.
4. Feeling full after eating a small amount.

Men - get your ladies to check their ovaries. Women - listen to your body.

“Wear a frock every day for the month, it will be fun,” they said. Let me tell you right now, it is not fun. Actually, frocks suck a little bit. I’m not totally averse to a nice frock,  but wearing them every day, no matter what the weather is doing, is a bit shit.

Here’s why.... https://wordpress.com/post/flirtingwithfiction1.com/121
