Stupid Cancer
February 23, 2010

My battle has been long, and overwhelming at times. I thought I was the only one. Lonely and depressed, I searched the web for some insight on how to deal with these feelings, not so much the chemo and its impressive side effects. When I found i [2] y, it was because I searched the words stupid and cancer. How excited I was to find them. Through their continued will and determination, I myself joined in the only way I knew I could. By letting others who wanted to help me do so, I was able to join with them and be able to advocate for "stupid cancer" as well as my specific rare type of Ovarian cancer. To be in your 20's, and noone else around to relate to, I'm too Young For This was what I needed. Because of them, I may have found my new calling :)
