Naomi Watts, Day 7 of 12 Days!
590 days ago

I am currently undergoing chemotherapy for stage 4 ovarian cancer. Throughout the past 6 months I have been surrounded by friends and family who have provided me with so much support that I know I am truly blessed. I would love to win the 12 Days and be able to give something back to those that have given so much to me. I would give these gifts as a way of paying it forward because without their support, I would not have rides to chemo, coverage at my job, dinners provided, and their emotional support has helped me to maintain my positive attitude which I know is crucial for survival.

Ellen, If you haven't done a show on ovarian cancer, I strongly urge you to consider it. It is the leading cause of death from gynecological cancers in the the US and 5th leading cause of cancer death among women. There are no early detection tests so it is often misdiagnosed and not found until it has progressed. Anything you can do to spread the word about early detection would be great!
E- eating less, feeling full
A- abdominal pain
T- trouble with your bladder

Considering the number of women who watch your show, it would certainly be a worthwhile topic to discuss. Thank you for helping me to smile every day when I watch your show. You lift me up!
