Uterine cancer affects women across the globe, and each patient’s story is unique. We are grateful to our patients who have shared their stories with us on this page, to give hope to others facing a similar diagnosis.
Diagnosed with uterine cancer, Karen Brustman had a hysterectomy, but the cancer recurred in her bladder. After radical surgery to remove the persistent tumor, vagina, bladder sigmoid colon and part of her rectum, she’s cancer free.
