5. Blood count stability
6. Plan a summer Maui vacation
7. More treatment options for ovarian cancer patients
8. Getting more attention for ovarian cancer treatments and to make positive changes in the treatment of ovarian cancer
9. Having chemo at a beach or location of your choice-traveling chemo
10. Heparin flush with added mint options so you don’t have horrible after taste
11. A break from chemo for more than one week and not due to blood issues, but cancer elimination
12. Make food my friend
13. Stay strong even when today seems unbearable and impossible: NEGU
14. Hoping that Chemo by proxy which impacts those close to you will be discontinued soon
15. Never forget what is important
16. Continue to hope that those you know will understand the importance of having your priorities in the right order and those who don’t understand will maybe think twice

18. Hair growth in the right places!
19. Clone copies of the best nurses and the others go somewhere else
20. Pre meds for chemo with a massage chair
21. No more fat pants due to cancer growth and just due to real fat growth
22. While getting Benadryl pre med and high dose steroids, please don’t let me fall asleep with my mouth open , snore like the sound of a chain saw, and drool down the front of my shirt
23 just like a server who checks on your meal when you put a giant bite of food in your mouth, please no doctor visits during pre meds…because I can’t stop eye twitching like constant winking and have to focus on keeping my eyes open instead of listening of what doc is saying….let his voice stop sounding like Charlie browns teacher, “wah, wah, wah, wah”
24. In a perfect world, the politics of drug development would stop and the cures of many cancers would begin
25. Continue to live every day to the fullest and finding some sunshine each and every day.
26. Every day when I check the message boards, I will stop seeing the posts of fellow patients dying from ovarian cancer and more living with cancer or even having their cancer go away for good.

Motto of the month: no matter how tall the mountain it cannot block out the sun!

“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words. ”
― Rachel Naomi Remen
