Annette, a breast cancer survivor, shares the connection between ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
I am Annette Leal Mattern and the last time we spoke I was talking with you about my ovarian cancer survivorship. I had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, and so I am here to give you an update to my story.
The connection between ovarian cancer and breast cancer is that, first of all, they’re both hormonal-based cancers and many women are at higher risk if they’ve had one, they’re at higher risk for the other. So the important thing for women to know is that if you do have breast cancer, you need to be very vigilant about monitoring for ovarian cancer and vice versa.
