Dona introduces herself and recalls if she had ovarian cancer warning signs or symptoms before her diagnosis.

Dona:
My name is Dona. I am an ovarian cancer survivor, and I would like to share my story.

I did, but I ignored them because I thought that it was just my age, that I was getting older. I had a few aches and pains and thought that was it, but I had enough that I went to my gastroenterologist thinking that it could be a colon problem. And since he is a good friend of mine and my son’s, he pursued it, and he is actually the one who found the cancer.

I had bloating, gas, slight pain down in the lower area at my abdomen and was slightly tired, and that’s it.
