What All Women Should Know – But Probably Don’t
I created this lens a little over a month after I lost my mother to Vulvar Cancer. She had been having various gynecological symptoms, but put off going to the doctor due to other health issues she was having. When she finally went she was quickly diagnosed with Stage III cancer.
My first thought upon hearing the news was “What the heck is Vulvar Cancer!? It was not a cancer I had heard anything about, and I soon discovered I was not the only one in the dark about this disease.
If I knew then what I know now it is possible that my mother might still be alive. At the very least I think her quality of life toward the end might have been improved. Unfortunately, although her doctors were able to completely kill all the localized cancer, it had already metastasized and moved into her lymph nodes, lungs and bones. She died just about a month after we received the news that the cancer had spread.
I built this lens as a sort of tribute to my mother. I can’t think of anything she would like better than to know that other women learned from her experience and might live longer happy and productive lives because of it.
