Patient Video - Ariana’s story: What was your experience with surgery for your ovarian cancer?
Ariana reflects on the experiences she had with surgery when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the young age of 17. She had fertility-sparing surgery, to spare her uterus and one ovary. Now 20 years later, she shares her perspective in the hope that it will help other young women with ovarian cancer discuss surgical options with their doctors.
