If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you will have dozens of questions racing around in your head and you will want to learn as much as you can about the type of treatment and support services available. And you need to make sure that information comes from a trusted source.
Resilience is designed to inform and support you, and enable you to connect with other women’s experiences of living with ovarian cancer.
This part of the Ovarian Cancer Australia web site will help you to stay informed about treatments for ovarian cancer, find a specialist treatment centre near you and learn more about participating in clinical trials.
You will also quickly find out that no one ever needs to cope with ovarian cancer by themselves. There are many support options available for you, your family and friends. This is where you will find out about the compassion and connections you can make through support groups — whether it is face-to-face, over the phone or online. You can also download and link to a wide range of helpful information and read the very personal stories of women living with ovarian cancer.
