Margit Detweiler was a busy media executive (President of Gyrate Media) and founder of, an online community of over-40 women, when she discovered she had ovarian cancer on a fluke. As she managed the shift from her on-the-go lifestyle, she documented her experience in a Webby-nominated column Ovarian Rhapsody as a way to process the experience, and give women like her a resource that she couldn’t find when she was looking. She shares the story of how she discovered her cancer, her journey through treatment, and the advice she has for women like her, and their friends and family.
