The research hospital I was in is taking part in developing a vaccine for Ov Cancer. I was asked to donate several vials of my blood to be used in studies. They did not have to ask me twice.

There are several ovarian vaccine trials in Dallas where I live, one is for the HER2 that was mentioned in the article, it's a phase 1 trial though. The phase 2 FANG trial where they make a vaccine from your tumor is also starting but I'm not eligible since I've recurred. If I can kick this recurrence to the curb I'm going to look into the phase 1 trials (gulp)! We definitely need some hope around here!
