Success Story

Tammy Chambers Tammy was diagnosed in February 2007 with Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer (Fallopian tube, Endometrial, Cervical…cell type ovarian)

Over the course of several months, she received 6 cycles of chemotherapy followed by radiation. She completed the treatments in September 2007.

As of her last doctor's visit, she had no current evidence of disease.

I credit the physicians for the excellent care I received along with the Cancer Assistance Fund of North Texas for providing valuable cancer support services. CAFNT's services helped me through my treatment, improved my quality of life, and allowed me to continue working during that time. CAFNT also provided access to massage therapy and acupuncture services which helped with the fatigue, neuropathy and other side effects from my treatments. I was also able to consult with a dietician prior to beginning therapy which helped to minimize and manage some of the side effects through modifications in my diet.

One of the newest program offerings I was able to experience is Moving Forward. This program is targeted toward patients who have completed their cancer treatment. The end of treatment is often more difficult for cancer patients than the start of treatment. It is a time of uncertainty and fear. Many struggle, as I did, with moving forward with their life and making plans for their future for fear that their cancer might return. The Moving Forward program helped me to make that next step…moving on with my life and planning for my future.

I am extremely grateful to CAFNT for the work they do in improving the treatment experience for cancer patients.
