The cops were sure her boyfriend had nothing to do with Denise’s disappearance ... We never believed he did either. In fact, he came home to help us search the basements and stairways and rooftops of the Mets. I searched the streets of Greenwich Village to see if she ran away with hippies.

A lot of women worry that because a close relative’s had ovarian cancer, they will get it, but in most cases it’s a one-off meaning there isn’t a family link ... So while it’s important to know your family history, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have a significantly increased threat if someone in your family has had it.
It’s worth remembering that the symptoms for ovarian cancer are persistent ... By persistent I mean something that doesn’t go away and doesn’t fluctuate like, say, period pain does. These are symptoms that occur more than 12 times a month. Write down the symptoms, the intensity of them and how frequently they occur. Then when you go to your GP, take your diary with you as it can help talk through the changes you’re experiencing.More quotes »
