My aunt's biopsy results came in tonight and the cancer spread to her lymph nodes. I'm not sure if it was just the pelvic nodes or if it was in the abdominal nodes, too. Radiation treatments will start sometime next month. At this point, we don't know what stage we're looking at or what her prognosis is. Mom and I plan on asking all of those kinds of questions on May 7, which is her next appointment. The good news is that she's working with one of the best gynecological oncologists in the world, thanks to her general practitioner. Right now, I'm trying to stay optimistic.

Looks like I'll be adding a peach ribbon to my pink, gray and teal. Pink for grandma's breast cancer, gray for another aunt's brain tumors, teal for my own pcos and risk of ovarian cancer. And, of course, the other aunt's covered by the peach and pink, since hers started with breast and ovarian cancer. By the time the relay comes around, I won't have much of my shirt showing under all of the awareness ribbons...
