This article was written by Gogs Gagnon in memory of his sister, Joanne. Gogs opens up about the impact of losing his sister to ovarian cancer and his hope for those diagnosed today. “Ever since I can remember, Joanne was always there for me.”
In this article, I share a confession to my sister Joanne who passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 56. She was my best friend, and I miss her deeply. Please don’t avoid or be embarrassed to see a doctor about any health issues or concerns. No one wants to face a cancer diagnosis. Until treatments improve to save all lives, the best hope is early detection.
