My grandmother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer today. I've been trying to read up as much as I can since I got told two hours ago. I was wondering if anyone here can please provide me with any helpful articles about it or something for here that would lift her spirits now that she has this. I went to a Canadian website and they had a booklet for women with the disease however they only ship within Canada and I'm a Yankee. Thank you very very much.

Look for Gilda Radner's biography, I don't know what its called but she suffered from very advanced ovarian cancer. The book may have some insights in it or some leads to follow. Read the book first though if you intend to give it to your grandmother, I haven't read it so it may be too tough for her to read right now or may not be appropriate.

www.ovarian.org...

Is an american site with divisions for states, it seems to have a lot of info online so you won't need a booklet, just print off the pages that you need.

www.ovariancancer.org...

Is another site that seems to have input from survivors of ovarian cancer.

I can't vouch for any of these sites, and I am not a doctor, I just searched google and these came up. I hope it is a start to find what you need.

Wishing you and your grandmother good health and a speedy recovery.

These are good suggestions, as Gene Wilder, her husband has/is devoting his life to this type of cancer.
I have survived cancer 3 times, so PLEASE just think it does not have to be the end..My prayers will be with you and her..

There is good news about my grandmother's condition. The test results came back from the tumor and she has Stage IB not Stage III as their originally thought.

That is so good to know that she is in an early stage. It is much easier to recover when they catch it early. Best Wishes and I hope that everything goes smoothly.
