Review for The Clearity Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA
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.
