As part of my work with women who have been diagnosed with female cancers, I strive to provide the same level of care for all women that I would expect to give my own family members. The medical journey for patients with these cancers can be very difficult and I extend my care and concern to them. I work with them to become a survivor with my medical, surgical, and emotional support.
