Ovarian Cancer Survival Rates: Be Educated, Not Defeated

Sometimes the scariest part of having ovarian cancer is hearing the survival rates. Most of the time, we are hit with these numbers right away and they can be so overwhelming!

Some people advise you not to pay attention to the information and while I understand that philosophy, it's not helpful.

Ovarian cancer survival rates

Survival rates are not here to scare you. They are to be used as information for both your oncologist and you. And that is all it should be taken as. It's not a life guide or a set timeline. And just as with every other form of cancer, remember every person is different, treatment is different, and how a person responds is different.

So be educated, not defeated! Don't stop loving, laughing, and living! This is still your life, make the best of it!
