My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA
Prior to working for this wonderful nonprofit I referred numerous women diagnosed with breast cancer to thesecondopinion. Most of these women were newly diagnosed and often times were delaying treatment, because they were undecided about their treatment options, or did not fully understand the benefits of each treatment option. Some of the women I referred just wanted to hear from an outside independent medical team that they were receiving optimal care and doing all they could to prevent the cancer from returning. Having free access to an independent second opinion helped these women gain the knowledge they needed to make informed treatment decisions. It also helped to alleviate some of the anxiety and emotional trauma of a cancer diagnosis.
