This may be over personal, and I hope it isn't, but I'm asking anyway. 

My mum has a one inch mass on her ovary, and we are doing some tests to make sure that it isn't cancer. We have no history of cancer in my family — we may drop dead young of heart attacks, have horrible obesity problems, glaucoma problems, and multiple births, but no cancer. 

I'm hoping it stays that way. My mum is my rock. Even though we don't live together anymore, we text throughout the day, and run together 2-4 times a week. 

I'm an atheist, but my mum is religious, so if you wouldn't mind keeping her in your prayers/ thoughts, it would be much appreciated. We have been preoccupied with this, ultrasounds, and now the CA125 test for the past week and a half, and that is why I have kind of disappeared. 

I know I'm just creating needless worry for myself and others, but I look at the statistics, and the size of the mass, and think that my sister is only twelve, and if it is cancer, chances are my mother wouldn't live to see her eighteenth birthday.

That thought terrifies me in unimaginable ways. 


  1. Good luck sweetie, I have everything crossed. My beloved Nan has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, so I get how testing this time is xx

  2. Thank you! We have just gotten an all clear from her doctors, and a final check up next month. I will have things crossed for your Nan.


Thank you! I love to read and respond to your comments.
