Colleen shares if she educates her family about ovarian cancer and what she is experiencing.

Colleen:
Oh, absolutely, yes, yes, and they educate other people. They are amazing girls. They talk to people about ovarian cancer all the time, and they listen to other people who have symptoms and they say, “Gosh, have you ever thought of this or have you ever thought of that?” And my daughter is a pharmacist at the hospital, and some doctors, she was doing rounds with doctors one day, and a woman came in, and she had some very similar symptoms to ovarian cancer. And it was my daughter who made the suggestion to them: “Why don’t you do a CA 125 and a transvaginal abdominal ultrasound on this woman?” You know, and sure enough, it turned out that she had ovarian cancer. And they would have never thought that, and so you know, I find that they are educating other people as well, which makes me really proud.
