Sylvia Des Vries shares her journey with ovarian cancer which metastasized and caused her to experience multiple complications and set backs. After six years in remission, Sylvia was told that not only had the cancer return but her prognosis did not look good at all. Thankfully, her husband took an assertive and determined approach in finding a way to get them through this dreadful transition. After all, they were told that there was nothing more that they could do for Sylvia and with her condition being considered terminal, they gave her an estimate of two months to live. Not so fast, the Des Vries were not about to settle into their diagnosis.
In fact, it was through the research that they found the Issels Treatment Center and the rest is in Sylvia's journey.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
