Ovarian Cancer Treatment Leads Two Women to Friendship

Ovarian Cancer: Erin and Nicola share a similar experience

Erin and Nicola share a similar experience

From the burden of both diagnoses sprouted a new friendship. Erin and Nicola shared a similar experience. Both women had thought they were pregnant when they were told they had cancer. Erin was at the doctor’s office to check on her second pregnancy when she was told they had found a large, 6-pound mass. Nicola thought she was pregnant with her first child when she was told that it was a tumor and not a baby growing inside her uterus. For both women, the nervous anticipation that comes with new motherhood was quickly replaced by the cold darkness of dread and uncertainty.
