Amy Rosenthal is dying of ovarian cancer. I know that’s blunt, but there was no other way really to get into this story. Amy who is a children’s picture book author – is in the final stages of fighting. Amy said that on Sept. 5, 2015 — when her daughter had just left for college — she had to go to the Hospital ER because she thought she had appendicitis. Instead, it was ovarian cancer. And this past week, Amy wrote a column about that struggle and more in the “Modern Love” column for the New York Times.
Amy wrote that she has gone weeks without eating real food. She admits to falling asleep mid-sentence because of the morphine she needs to fight the pain. She also talked about her family…2 grown sons and a twenty something daughter who is a little put out with her, because last week Amy created a dating profile online. Yes, you heard that right, in the midst of this cancer fight Amy has been busy filling out the questionnaire on sites like eHarmony, Bumble, and Tinder. But before you judge too harshly, you should know the profile is not for her…but for her husband that she is about to leave behind.
Amy said despite feeling weak that she wants him to fall in love again after she is gone. She said “He is a sharp dresser…. he has a flair for fabulous socks. He is fit and enjoys keeping in shape.” Amy raved that her husband is a great lawyer, an excellent cook who paints in his spare time. She said He loves listening to music and showed up at their first pregnancy ultrasound with flowers. She continued “If you’re looking for a dreamy, let’s-go-for-it travel companion, Jason is your man.”
