Review

†

†

Shared decision-making is a process in which

you and your doctors plan treatment together.

†

†

Asking your doctors questions is vital to getting

the information you need to make informed

decisions.

†

†

Getting a 2

nd

opinion, attending support groups,

and comparing benefits and risks may help you

decide which treatment is best for you.

My wife, Cathy, was diagnosed with

Stage 3-C ovarian cancer in August

2011. Looking back, she recognized

that she suffered symptoms for

over a year before being diagnosed.

During her battle with ovarian cancer,

she fought to create earlier awareness

initiatives. Although she is no longer

with us, we will continue to make

earlier awareness our foundation’s

focus.
