The Quest


Sharon Leigh Rude
Why I created this foundation and website is relatively simple to put into words, the real issue is not so simple. I want to help save women's lives through education...

That sounds uncomplicated with a very big exception... it's not!

I have found that reeducating women is not that easy. We still think that our doctors are infallible, we think what he or she says is gold. After all they are the educated ones with medical degrees.

There have been times when women have approached me with this comment:
"Why didn't I listen to you?"

There is not a lot you can say when the damage is done, ovarian cancer has hit the unexpected target, and the fight for life has begun.

My personal fight began when my sister died from Ovarian cancer, then I was diagnosed with the same cancer. I fortunately had listened when my sister advised me to get three tests she had not heard of. I did as she suggested. When I was diagnosed my cancer was in Stage 1. It is very rare to find ovarian cancer in the earliest of stages.

The tests you should be asking for are these:
1. Pelvic exam
2. Pelvic ultra sound
3. CA 125 blood test
Never get these test alone always these three tests together. False readings do occur.

Side note: ask your doctor what the reading is on the CA 125, don't be left in the dark regarding the number this will keep you advised on your health. Anything over 35 is dangerous. This alone can be a false reading, that's why you have to be aware and knowledgeable.

Be sure to review this website for more info on early detection of Ovarian Cancer and check out our 2 Minute Survey.

Our foundation continues to grow, we have had three successful golf tournaments raising approximately $140,000. We have scheduled a Fashion/Luncheon soon with guest speakers, again with the purpose of education. Our goal is to have two to three of these luncheons per year along with the golf tournament.

Blessings,
Sharon Leigh
