Center for Advancement in Cancer Education
June 27, 2013

Despite all kinds of regular checkups by all kinds of doctors ovarian cancer stage three hit me at age 74 with my first indication of a problem a modest pain in my lower abdomen. Within three weeks of diagnosis I had to have major surgery and then chemotherapy. I was weak, scared, overwhelmed and clueless. I finally remembered that there was this amazing resource within a five minute drive of my house and called the Center. I was fortunate enough to be able to arrange a consultation with Susan Silberstein within a matter of several weeks.
She suggested a number of things to consider and how to manage the effects of the chemotherapy and I had two more follow up consultations in that first year. Susan was so knowledgeable, so kind, so practical, and so honest that I knew I gcould trust her and that gave me hope. It has taken time to implement all of her dietary suggestions, which I know are critical, but I do better all the time and I am so grateful for the resources the Center offers. The printed materials are invaluable and reasonably priced. I recommend the Center whenever I learn of someone facing cancer who I think would be willing to be open to r the kind of help the Center offers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

wave a magic wand so that they did not have to spend so much energy raising money but could use that time to help even more people.
