Janet was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September-2016, Over these past six years, it was mostly the side effects of treatment, not the disease itself, that caused the most strife. Janet has dealt with multiple surgeries and many courses of chemo -- and she has generally responded well to treatment , even achieving a few remissions. Indeed, Janet continued to work full-time at the City of Bellevue for more than four years after the initial diagnosis. In the beginning of 2021 things got tougher. We learned that you can be fine with cancer -- until you're not. And then you take it day by day.
We are blessed to have access to world-class care and a Gyn-Onc Care Team at UWMC/SCCA we both trust and admire. And we are blessed to have friends and family that care about and support us. Thanks to you all.
