- ABOUT NOCC
Please help me support National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's great cause!
I found out firsthand how wonderful the NOCC is after being diagnosed with Stage 3C ovarian cancer on March 29th, 2019. The Faces of Hope bags that they distribute to the hospitals for women undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer is full of information that is essential and yet comforting.
From the start I was determined that this wasn't going to beat me and take over my life!! My husband and I decided that the University of Chicago Medical Center is where I would go for treatment.Fortunately we met with the top gynecological oncologist, Dr. Ernst Lengyel.
He wasted no time with my treatment plan. I went for 3 rounds of chemo, a major surgery and then 3 more rounds of chemo. On October 8th they declared me CANCER FREE!!!
Through it all I had an unbelievable support system!! My devoted husband, children, family and friends have helped me from the very beginning. I couldn't have gone through it without each and everyone of them!
I can't thank Dr, Lengyel enough for his wonderful mind, his research and phenomenal surgical skills! I wouldn't be in the wonderful health I am today without him, the entire surgical team, my chemo nurse and all hospital staff involved from day one. For this reason I'm proud to be part of UChicago Teal We Have a Cure team.
