My sister has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer =(

  1. Hello everyone!

    My little sister has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, she is very young. She has stage two non-gestational choriocarcinoma of the ovary. Does anyone know of any good websites to find information on this type of cancer? When I look it up all I come up with is a articles. I just want to read general information about this type of cancer. Has anyone ever dealt with this type of cancer? Had any patients with this type of cancer? What was your experience like? She starts chemotherapy pretty soon and is recovering from surgery. I appreciate any input and any positive thoughts! Thanks in advance!
