Dairyland restaurant at 800 Springmill St. in Mansfield is showing its support for one of their employees who is battling Ovarian cancer for the second time. Thirty-five-year-old, Rebekah Dickison, was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2008. After several rounds of chemotherapy she went into remission in July 2009. In August of this year Rebekah learned her cancer had returned. "It started July. I was at the pool, I rolled over and I felt a sharp pain in my back. I had the pain for awhile," Rebekah said. "I got to the point where I was having trouble walking and I couldn't keep my food down. I called my oncologist and he ordered a CAT scan," Rebekah said. "I had the scan done on Aug. 6 which revealed a mass on my kidney. I also had a spot on my liver," Rebekah said. Rebekah said a biopsy was done and it revealed her cancer had returned. Rebekah's oncologist started her on chemotherapy. "I started my first treatment Sept. 5. The plan is to have three treatments and another CAT scan to see if the mass has shrunk. From there the doctor will decide if more chemo is needed," Rebekah said.  Rebekah's co-workers decided to hold a fundraiser and sell T-shirts to help pay for her medical bills. Rebekah said she is thankful for the support of her co-workers and is determined to beat her cancer again. She said her goal during this battle with ovarian cancer is to raise awareness.  A Facebook page has been set up in support of Rebekah, Kickin Cancers Butt with Rebekah. T-shirts and hoodies are also being sold on the Facebook page.  The Fall Fun Benefit for Rebekah will be held Saturday, Oct. 19 from 3-10 p.m. at the Richland Rural Life Center at 969 Crall Road. There will be food, music, a raffle and a silent auction. For more information contact Bridgette Olar at 419-561-1437.
