  1. I am wondering, on the Today show this morning, a doctor, when questioned about ovarian cancer, (I am an oc patient at MGH) gave ultimately no hope, no mention of transvaginal ultrasound or any indication at all that anything could be done to even attempt an early intervention. How much worse can it be in Africa?
