I'm so sorry about it...All I can say is just Don't get depressed and sink with your fear. Stress could make our immune system drop, and the cancer would spread easily. If you trust in God, pray and ask Him the best way. His Words really could heal you. You want to see your daughter grow up, then it will motivate you to live more longer..From now on we have to live positively and eat healthy food. Say positive words and drink green tea everyday. My biggest fear as a mother is the same with you..how if i couldn't see them grow up. Have a blessed day snowbitz..

thank you for the advice.I always thank God for the illness He has given me because of it i learned to value my life.But sometimes when i look at my daughter i can't help but have a teary eye thinking of what might happen to her if i am gone.My worry right now is that i came across about an article if i am not mistaken about RAI the side effect is one in a million ovarian cancer i already ask my doctor about it but they said its too far from the truth.My doctor saw a cyst in my ovary and i have to wait until november 4 to have it check again this time they're going to insert something inside to see it clearly it stressed me out to wait that long.

I could really understand your fear...Your daughter is as old as my son. I hope you'll be alright...Even it look bad, God surely has a plan in your life. Your life is written on His palm. Stay positive and be strong...

What I fear is when I can't give anything my son needs. I am a student and still attending college, I want to finish my schooling to give him the right education he needs. Things he needs, a house that we can live with the rest of our lives.

my biggest fear is not to be acknowledged as their mother. influences from the outside world cannot be controlled. and i am here praying that the good Lord will always protect them from the evil influences. i think you should tell your husband. it is not fair, dear, that he will know it later when everything is at its end. i hope you'll be better and well in the coming days.

Hi, So sad to hear about this bad incident happened to you. What I can say here is to be strong and don't depress yourself. Since your husband is not always at your side,but he will back home one day. And i believe he still contacted you during his sailing time. Do let him know about your condition and he has the right to know it. Do get some advices from doctor specialist and see what is the best way to cure both sickness now. Always stay positively. How old is your daughter now? If she is still young,probably you may not need to tell her in details yet about your sickness,but you really need to inform your family members like parents or siblings on your condition.

thank you for the advice.my daughter is only 4 years old.I don't really know how to tell him my concern is he still sailing and he's working.They told me that i need to have another scan this time they need to insert something inside to know what kind is the cyst that grow in my ovary.my worry is that I took the RAI for my thyroid cancer this year but before i took the radiation,I came across some article about the side effect of radiation if i am not mistaken it is related to ovarian cancer.I ask my doctor about it they told me that its far from the truth.how sure they are?why is it that some article was written about it if it is not true?

my biggest fear as a mother is anything to happen to put my family in danger. whether it be illness etc. i would hate for anything to happen to my son, or for anything to make our family unit incomplete. i do think however that sometimes as a mother you can worry about too much. i have found myself that i have paniced about things that are out of my control. ok you have to worry about things, but there isn't anything that you can do
