Hearing a diagnosis of ovarian cancer at the age of 36 is devastating. To survive surgery and chemotherapy, while caring for two young boys, can be overwhelming. Vinita Mathew, MD, shares how she dealt with her diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from cancer. She explains how she handled her illness while caring for her sons, who were 18 months and 5 years old at the time of her diagnosis. She writes about how she dealt with various challenges and made her family a part of her journey. Her inspirational story will help you to build confidence, develop coping skills, and understand the power of hope. Dr. Mathew is a physiatrist, a physician who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. She chose this field after she suffered a traumatic brain injury that put her in a coma. She dedicates her career to improving people's lives by decreasing their pain and disability. After surviving a brain injury, she thought she could handle any obstacle. Having cancer years later showed her that one could still find hope, even when faced with a life-threatening disease.show more
