About Joy

Joyce Elaine Kaup...


On March 8, 2007 without any warning other than symptoms of lack of appetite and bloating, Joyce was diagnosed with stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. Just 9 months later, on December 18, 2007, she passed away while her children stroked her face and held her hand. Joy was only 63 years old and had just had a normal gynecological exam 3 months earlier!

We share this story with thousands of other families. Ovarian Cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer because most cases are not diagnosed until late stages.

The symptoms of Ovarian Cancer are often misread or dismissed, until it is too late.

For more information about Ovarian Cancer, here are some more resources.
