Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir
Here’s a little about Karen. I
am a retired nurse, active blogger, author, and advocate. I do
presentations about gynecologic cancers, particularly ovarian. My
experience as a nursing student and practicing nurse was that there was
no (or very little) education or training on gyn. cancers. I find this
to still be true among medical students and nursing students. Even many
doctors are not aware of the symptoms of ovarian cancer.
When Karen Ingalls was
diagnosed with Stage II Ovarian Cancer, she realized how little she knew
about what was once called ”the silent killer.” As Ingalls began to
educate herself she felt overwhelmed by the prevalent negativity of
cancer. Lost in the information about drugs, side effects, and
statistics, Ingalls redirected her energy to focus on the equally
overwhelming blessings of life, learning to rejoice in each day and find
peace in spirituality.
