RebeccaOvarian cancer is often a chronic disease. Many women recur after their initial treatment presenting new challenges. Family support and expert guidance is so vitally important because there are many choices for treatment in this situation. Please discuss ALL options with your doctor.

New treatments and therapies are being introduced all the time, so please don’t give up!

Ask your doctor about genomics, immunotherapy and clinical trials. In many instances, ovarian cancer patients are eligible to enroll in clinical trials -- depending on stage, type, prior treatments and the molecular profile of your specific type of ovarian cancer.
