I was diagnosed with cancer on August 27, 2015. Now, as a survivor, every August 27 I remember and give thanks for all the people who helped me that day and in the ensuing years. This year, I added some people I’ve never even met to my gratitude list.
Ovarian cancer is the second most common type of gynecological cancer, but it is also the most lethal because it is usually detected at later stages when it is more difficult to treat, which is why early detection is so important.
Kidney cancer kills about 14,000 people every year. It is especially deadly when it is found in the late stages. Scott was first diagnosed with kidney cancer in January of 2011 and given only 10 months to live...that was over 8 years ago.
