Hi everyone, just joined up to this forum and thought I'd introduce myself. I am 47 years old, and was diagnosed 'out of the blue' in August 2010 with Ovarian cancer. Had a radical hysterectomy in september and told my cancer was a stage three. I embarked on a raw vegan diet, gave up alcohol (tricky!) caffeine (equally tricky!)gave up work(easy!)and increased my excersise (much to the delight of my two kelpies)and started meditating. I went to the gawler foundation in the Yarra Valley for ten days in Oct, and can honestly say it was the most deep, profound life-changing experience of my life thus far. So now I have a different outlook on life and living, an appreciation and realisation of its precious and fragile nature. I believe I have not only been given a wake-up call but a second chance...which I am grabbing with both hands! I just re-read this post and think thats probably enough soul-baring for now:) Hev.
