An ovarian cancer diagnosis affects the whole family and can put a tremendous strain on both caregivers and loved ones. There are many ways to lend support to a woman who has recently been diagnosed or is experiencing a recurrence.

Understanding treatment options and assisting in day-to-day responsibilities can go a long way toward a successful recovery. These women emerge from treatment with a "new normal". While they may look the same as prior to diagnoses, their physical health, mental health and general well-being have changed -- often drastically.

Ovarian cancer is often a chronic disease with sometimes debilitating side effects. At NormaLeah, we assist patients, caregivers and families to help evaluate options and best practices for an enriched survivorship.
