Surviving Ovarian Cancer
“I urge anyone diagnosed with cancer to immediately find good, professional doctors who you believe in… Now, I live each day filled with optimism and gratitude for my Israeli savior.”
Choosing Sheba for my surgery
Initially, for the first six months after my diagnosis, I was self-medicating. But I knew I couldn’t do it on my own forever. My thoughts went back to seven years ago, when I had accompanied my husband to Sheba Medical Center, where he received treatment. At that time, the dedication and compassion of Larisa, his medical coordinator, had left a lasting positive impression on me.
As my condition worsened significantly, I reached out to the International Tourism Division at Sheba Medical Center for help.
In November 2019, I arrived at Sheba and was assigned my personal coordinator, Vera. She had already arranged all the necessary tests and consultations. My first meeting was with Dr. Rosenblatt, who I will forever remember fondly. That was when I knew I would have the tumor removal surgery at Sheba.
