Listen as Ellen shares what went through her mind when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Ellen:
Well my first thought was that I wasn’t really in the moment of hearing that. I got a flush that came over my entire body. I was soaked from head to toe and first thought this couldn’t be happening to me then, when I started to let it sink in a bit the first thing I said was I am going to have to get rid of somehow my vanity because I knew I was going to be bald.

I really didn’t know much about ovarian cancer so I really didn’t know what to expect. I knew Gilda Radner die from ovarian cancer, but I didn’t really have any conception of what ovarian cancer was.
