Annette explains if she fears the current return of ovarian cancer.

No, no, I am really not scared about it at all. I am not. I look at this, and a big thing for me is I don’t think of it as a battle. I don’t think of myself as battling ovarian cancer or any cancer. I have embraced my body as it is and what it is, and the cancer comes for from me. It would be like being angry at your hand or your foot. It’s part of me.

There are cells that have lost their way. They’re not some horrible diabolical thing that’s living inside of me. It’s a condition, and so I decided a long time ago that if I was going to live with this for a long time, I did not want to be angry at something that was going on inside my body. Why would I do that?
