Renea Matlock

Updated: Feb 2

My name is Renea Matlock.

I met Ovarian Cancer when my mom was diagnosed at 59.





Devastation and grief, no one would listen...


The news devastated me. What was more devastating was the fact that I had brought her to ER five times in the 2 months before the cancer was found.


“ Each visit resulted in a different diagnosis, she had endometriosis, she was dehydrated, she was faking it, she had gas. ”

Each visit resulted in a different diagnosis, she had endometriosis, she was dehydrated, she was faking it, she had gas. All wrong. She had stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. Our lives would forever change. After she was diagnosed, I searched the Internet on Ovarian Cancer only to find out that all the things she had been complaining about to the doctors in the ER were symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. She passed away 6 months later. Our lives changed yet again.  CT Women of HOPE is an organization where we reach out and educate women on Ovarian Cancer and its symptoms. Symptoms which are often written off as something else, yet they persist. Joining CT women of HOPE gives me the opportunity to talk to women about the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and perhaps they will share this information with their friends and so on and so on until EVERY woman in CT knows about this disease.
