Synopsis

"All of the research has reinforced that ovarian cancer is not a silent disease as was once thought and as is shown quite eloquently in this collection of stories . The value of this collection of stories is that it helps raise awareness about symptoms, need for patient persistence, and the importance of being treated by a gynecologic oncologist."

Barbara A. Goff, MD
Professor and Co-Director, Division of Gynecologic Oncology University of Washington School of Medicine
