Beating Ovarian Cancer: How To Overcome The Odds And Reclaim Your LifeChris Bledy

Bearing Witness: Living With Ovarian CancerKathryn Carter and Laurie Elit
“It is a collection of stories from women who went through the diagnosis of ovarian cancer, and treatment for it, only to find that the cancer recurred and any hope of recovery was gone. These women represent a spectrum of ages, ethnic backgrounds, marital circumstances, and professional experiences. From their stories we learn how each woman shapes the meaning of her life. Facing a life crisis can make one bitter and angry, but it can also provide the key to a thankful and generous spirit within.”(Review from: http://books.google.ca/books?id=45NuAI6lGrMC&dq=bearing+witness:+living+with+ovarian+cancer&source=gbs_navlinks_s)
