Hi! I'm Jennifer Burka and on April 28, 2015 I was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer, only to be told later that pathology listed it as a cancer of unknown origin. So I am fighting a battle that I am not sure where the primary source is. After my surgery on that date I underwent 5 months of Chemotherapy followed by another surgery to put me back together as my colon was also affected.
My Doctors tell me it can take up to 2 years for my body to work normally again so I try to remain positive that this too shall pass and I will find my new normal. My cancer was found because of MY determination. 6 months of Dr visits, scans and tests at MY insistence, and I was told I was fine. Even after feeling unwell and losing a lot of weight without trying. If I have learned one thing during this journey it is to never give up, listen to your body, and trust your own instincts. Thankfully someone finally listened and here I am, hopefully a cancer survivor!
