EVENT: Below the Belt 2017
On Sept 11, 2015, I was devastated to learn that I was diagnosed with Stage III/IV Ovarian Cancer. I am fiercely fighting this battle and will win. After a year filled with surgeries and intense IV chemotherapy, I was in complete remission for a short 3 months. About 3 months ago I was once again devastated to hear that my Cancer returned. Rather than IV chemotherapy I was offered a new chemo pill, PARP inhibitor. I have been on this new PARP inhibitor for 4 weeks and my tumor markers have decreased by more than half already! The drug is working and providing me with a better quality of life than IV infusion chemotherapy drugs. It is the constant research that aids in the discovery of new drugs, such as the one that I am taking, that will allow me to share many more moments with my young children and my family. Please consider donating to my team, Katie's Fearless Feat, which will aid in more research for "Below the Belt" Cancers and hopefully, one day, find a cure.
