When you or someone you love is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, initial feelings of shock, confusion, sadness and even anger can arise. While it is completely normal to experience these feelings, having access to information, resources and support can make it easier to cope. Our Way Forward was created to encourage ovarian cancer patients, their loved ones and healthcare providers to rethink how they talk about ovarian cancer.
On Our Way Forward, patients and care partners can learn more about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, treatment options, recurrent ovarian cancer and maintenance therapies and more.
Additionally, Our Way Forward believes that every ovarian cancer patient, care partner and healthcare professional has a unique experience and point of view. Learning about the perspectives and experiences of others can help make it easier to manage. Through connection and the art of storytelling, we can empower the community to share their stories to help others navigate the physical and emotional challenges this disease brings.
Explore these blogs and videos from real ovarian cancer patients and care partners on Our Way Forward:

Our Way Forward was created by TESARO, Inc. with input from the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA). TESARO is committed to offering resources to educate, empower and support those affected by ovarian cancer.
