My mother was 29 and in a very abusive relationship when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. It was very advanced. I remember watching her skin turn dark. I remember her wearing more wigs. She used to wear these fabulous wigs, great shoes, and she was a total glamazon. Diagnosed too late and gone too soon. She didn’t make it to 30. One thing people don’t know about me is that I wear great shoes in her honor and her memory.
