Nurset07,

I am unable to share a personal experience, but I hope these resources will be helpful to you:

Basic information on ovarian cancer: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cancer/basics/definition/con-20028096

One patient's story -- Beating Ovarian Cancer: http://youtu.be/mjXqXVYudjk

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition has a help line for ovarian cancer patients and their families. Read about the help line and how to get support here: http://www.ovarian.org/nocc_infoline.php
