Listen to the Whispers

This morning I stumbled upon a blog that led me to a campaign that the Ovarian Cancer Canada started, "Listen to the Whispers." A reminder to me to continue listening to my body. I don't how many stories I hear of people who have just not "felt right" and doctors either misdiagnose or don't act quickly enough. Cancer can have very vague symptoms ... many often dismissed by individuals themselves or healthcare practitioners.

I believe the Listen to the Whispers can apply to so many aspects of our lives. All around us, and within us, there are whispers.

I guess the question is ... are we going to listen?

  3. Hi Marilou - since having had ovarian cancer and learning more about it, my question is "why do they still say it's a cancer that whispers?" Ovarian cancer has a list of symptoms that can be checked and lead to diagnosis, if the doctors knew the symptoms. That leads me to ask, "do you know the symptoms of ovarian, cervical, uterine cancer?" It's good to know as your GP may not know or know what diagnostic tests are available.
