My Story

In 2014 I was diagnosed with clear cell ovarian cancer, a rare cancer associated with a poor survival rate. Although I was diagnosed at stage 1, the cancer progressed to stage 4 and I'm now on palliative care. This book catalogues my journey from initial diagnosis through 4 lines of gruelling chemotherapy, 5 surgeries, radiotherapy, DVTs and pulmonary embolisms to targeted therapy including immunotherapy that has put me in remission.

Hilary is often asked to tell her positive story at press conferences or requested to offer an opinion to other cancer patients globally via social media. She is a patient ambassador for several ovarian cancer charities and genomic testing organisations. Her interest being in precision oncology treatment. She has carried out a huge amount of research into her cancer and due to cutting-edge treatment in Hong Kong she has had access to advanced care. Here, she tells her story for all to read.


100% of profits from the paperback book will be donated to ovarian cancer charities.
