Cancer Can't Kill the Memories/Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Updated on October 28, 2014

You're Really Gone

I still can't believe that you're gone.

It doesn't seem that it has been so long.

Wasn't it just yesterday, you were here?

Right around the corner, so near?

Now from out of the blue,

Suddenly, I'm reminded of you.

A memory of something that you once said.

A voice so familiar inside my head.

How can it be that voice is now silent?

When once it was so strong, so cheerful and vibrant?

Too soon you were taken from this place.

A realm you occupied with a beautiful grace.

A truer lady, I may never find.

And I feel truly blessed that your path crossed mine.

(For Louise)

Ovarian Cancer Awareness

In the past, it was believed that ovarian cancer did not produce any symptoms until the tumor was widespread, and early symptoms of ovarian cancer were not recognizable.

However, the American Cancer Society has released a consensus statement about possible early symptoms of ovarian cancer. This statement was based on research implying that some of the early symptoms of ovarian cancer can be recognized. In particular, possible early ovarian cancer symptoms include the following:

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Urgent or frequent urination
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full very quickly

Researchers suggest that women who have these systems should see a gynecologist for cancer screening if these problems are new, if the symptoms are severe, and if they have been present continuously for over 2 to 3 weeks.

      Just beautiful. I looked at your profile, MandiGirl, and I think I know just how you feel... In my short time so far here on HubPages, I've found that the more of yourself you put into your writing, the better your unique appeal shows to others. Like one of my favourite Hubbers said:

      There's no sense in trying to please people-people can not be pleased when they have decided that your ideas don't fit into their worldview-why bother? My advice is to always be yourself, and if someone doesn't like you, or what you have to say-SAY IT ANYWAY.

      (seriously, this guy is great - I'm sure he won't mind the referral...)

      I've always heard (and practiced - it's true!) that the best way to improve writing skills is to just keep writing - if it looks like crap, throw it away and start again (if you're like me, you've probably been doing this privately all your life anyway, right?) You did a beautiful job capturing a wonderful sentiment with this hub - keep it up!
