From one-on-one conversations with Dr. Deb guiding my health decisions to weekly telephone support from my counselor (Ida) through Steps Through OC, the Clearity Foundation has been a constant throughout my ovarian cancer journey! I can not begin to express how grateful I am for their guidance and support!
I've had the pleasure of working with the Clearity Foundation this year and their dedication to cancer research is beyond compare. The organization's approach to helping save those with ovarian cancer, focusses on empowering women and tailoring support based on each individual's need. This strategy works well and allows the organization to collaborate with partner organizations throughout the industry. This helps to establish both short and long term goals for all organizations attempting to serve those faced with the difficult challenges and road ahead.
I love this foundation. It encourages and uplifts us survivors of ovarian cancer. Support, counseling and a comforting and friendly voice that encourages us through our process.
Clearity Foundation is a lifesaver in a number of ways. They provide top notch molecular profiling, guide you through every step of the way and support you emotionally and mentally. Receiving a diagnosis of ovarian cancer is frightening. Recurrence as is often the case is devastating. I found out about The Clearity Foundation about a year after my recurrence after failing a number of treatments. As soon as my testing came in the founder spent a great deal of time explaining the results and reassuring me there were treatments that would help. My recurrence was 13 years ago and I have been in remission for 11 of those years. The Clearity Foundation is innovative with top notch scientists and a support team who truly cares .
Clearity is an incredible organization that truly cares about those afflicted with ovarian cancer. I couldn’t envision a better support system for those in need.
Clearity is an inspiring organization that not only provides crucial support for women facing an ovarian cancer diagnosis, they save lives. Ovarian cancer is deadly and doesn't receive nearly enough attention. Clearity is on the frontlines addressing this grave disease, providing hope, counseling, and solutions. They need and deserve every bit of resources to continue this fight.
The Clearity foundation is a wonderful nonprofit organizations who’s number one mission is to help women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. They truly care for these women so much.
Being a physician, i didn’t realize how far behind ovarian cancer research was until I was diagnosed in 2018 and became a patient myself. I learned that after 1st line of chemo, treatment options become limited and moreover, some ovarian cancer types are actually resistant to chemo so managing their disease becomes even more difficult. The only way to advance research in ovarian cancer is through funding. I chose Clearity Foundation bec they advocate for ovarian cancer by improving the quality of lives of those affected along with their families. What attracted me initially to Clearity Foundation was their ability to provide tumor profiling for patients which help develop individualized treatment plans somewhat customized to patient’s cancer cells to have a better chance at beating ovarian cancer. They also guide patients to different clinical trials available which is crucial for those experiencing ovarian cancer recurrence. Clearity Foundation truly provides a much needed support system for those affected by ovarian cancer and serves as a voice for those who have suffered and/or lost their battle to this deadly disease.
My wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March of 2018. Needless to say, we did a lot of research during my wife’s battle with cancer and we continue to do so. What we learned is that ovarian cancer is decades behind most other cancer research and there are not many standard treatment options or research on them. Obviously, this is not what you want to learn about the disease that the love of your life has.
My wife is currently one of the lucky ones; she’s been in remission for about a year. The survival rate for ovarian cancer is much lower than many other cancers. Thus, there are less survivors; therefore, less advocates. This is why my wife and I have become strong advocates for ovarian cancer research. We have decided to help raise funds for the Clearity Foundation and here’s why:
1. They are actually involved in the treatment process and help people find clinical trials.
2. They offer “Tumor Blueprint.” Think of it as a profile to identify the characteristics of the cancer cells in a tumor and what drives its growth. This is used to aid your doctor in tailoring or identifying a better form of treatment. This is not a standard thing and if we had heard about the Tumor Blueprint we would have certainly used it.
3. They have performed hundreds of these tumor profiles and ARE ACTUALLY COMPILING DATA AND RESEARCH!!!
4. If my wife had a recurrence we’ll want and need help. And I have faith that we and others may find it here.
I have only been volunteering with Clearity Foundation for about a month now but it’s all been great! Everybody who works there is so kind and focused on their mission of helping women with ovarian cancer. Such a great foundation!
Clearity changes lives by empowering the women we serve to advocate for the best possible clinical treatments possible, ensuring better quality of life and working towards better outcomes. Claudia, featured in the video, is a wonderful example of the positive impact Clearity has on the lives of women facing ovarian cancer.
I have been volunteering with the Clearity Foundation for about 5 years. Ovarian Cancer has touched our family as it has so many others and this was my way to try and help a cause that was dear to my heart. The people at the Clearity Foundation work tirelessly to help every woman who comes to them. From unique tumor profiling to psychosocial counseling, all their services are totally free. The Clearity Foundation is making a difference in the lives of women with ovarian cancer everywhere and ensuring that they can live with hope, empowerment and dignity.
I was diagnosed in 2008 with IIIC ovarian cancer. After being incompletely debulked, I had carboplaten, taxol, and Avastin. I had my molecular profile done in 2010. It showed my tumor would best respond to Avastin, the drug I’d already had. I’ve been in remission since treatment. I’m convinced that if, or when, I recur, Clearity can guide me in selecting treatment. Therefore, I give the Clearity foundation high marks!
