Today, a year after her diagnosis, Zereana says, "It's still hard for me to believe it even happened. It’s been a really, really rough battle. When I went online and looked at the NOCC website I was so angry with myself because I had EVERY single symptom. But, at the time, I had no idea what the pain I was experiencing was all about."
"After treatment I sought out NOCC. I needed to share my story with others, particularly young women who think that they are maybe invincible. Breast cancer has won the war on awareness, but Ovarian Cancer hasn’t. If I can save one person through awareness, I think I may have given back for the life that God gave me."
Zereana is now dedicated to helping others defeat Ovarian Cancer.
"If someone had given me a Teal Tote I can’t begin to tell you how much help that would have been. There are such thoughtful things in there like a blanket for chemotherapy. I really wish I had had one; it is so incredibly important. It represents hope and provides material that educates you, and when you are educated, you are empowered to survive. It is a bag of love."
Zereana now volunteers for NOCC, and is the Leadership Council Chair for our San Antonio chapter. She is doing well today and in remission. But she will be the first to tell you that you never stop fighting Ovarian Cancer.
Please, join with Zereana and NOCC today to raise awareness, give the gift of hope and help the tens of thousands who will confront Ovarian Cancer for the first time in 2013.
Join with us to break the silence on Ovarian Cancer. Make 2013 a year of hope.
