My daughter was 18 when by complete surprise she missed a period. Because she was not active sexually and had never missed a period before she decided to go and see our family Doctor. He thought she should go for a ultra sounds and they found that she had one ovary the size of a baseball filled with all the makings of cancer. She had surgery within a few weeks and while removing the one ovary they saw the other one was also at the first stages of cancer and removed that one also. My only daughter that had really shown a real want of children up until then. Her ovaries both removed at the tender age of 18. Thank God she went on for the past 10 years cancer free and kept up with all of her appointments and still does. It was a horrifying experience that I Pray no parent has to go through and especially their child. I still worry daily that "it" will show up somewhere else :/ My daughter stays light hearted and still just as free spirited as always and I am not sure how she does it, but God Bless her. I hope someday she decides to use all alternatives to have a child or two of her own :) Love my Sara Beth!.

Well Lord Larry, I had a like post here about my daughter and it along with more of my posts have been deleted. Wonder how that is happening? Definately nothing inappropriate about them. Here, I shared my daughter had Ovarian Cancer at 18 out of the blue also. 10 yrs ago now. I wont do the post all over again, but that was all mine was about.

How sad about your daughter, Brenda, and at such a young age which even makes it worse.
Brenda July 12, 2013 at 12:00 PM
Thank you Barbara and any age is bad, but at 18 she of course had dreams of having a herd of children and be a school teacher. She dropped the teacher right away, with it being too much to relate to them all day :/ It had been her dream since she was little. She went on into business and now, thank god even in this economy, works one of those few companies that will always do more business instead of less. But, my post was about how hers was detected at that age and how most girls would have just overlooked this small sign and went on to not find out about it until she had pain or tried to start having babies. :/ I shared the personal information so that other young women would remember the story in case they ever experienced it and it made them boot it to the doctor. But someone saw fit to delete it or flag as inappropriate 3x's. Terrible that someone would do that on a post with valuable information for other people.
