Have cancer and in treatment for chemo for at least 6 months. Everyone else does a fundraiser but I haven't. I just am trying to cover medical bills and have my own apartment. Normal things! Trying to get resettled in the bay area.

Ovarian cancer: Sometimes called the silent cancer as the symptoms tend to sneak up on you. 20,000 people a year are diagnosd, 15,000 die, 50% die within 5 years. Heart disease, cancer, and then stroke the leading causes of death. Skin, colorectal, breast, prostrate, and lung are the most common cancers (in order). Good thing, overall rates of cancer going down. Many parts preventable based on lifestyle.
