Jane: Didn’t go far for treatment

Jane Flanders was nervous when she was the first in her family to be diagnosed with cancer; stage 3 ovarian cancer. However, her nervousness was soon an assignment to pay it forward, as she felt it was her turn to participate in a clinical trial with the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University.

Jane feels “blessed” that she didn’t have to go far for treatment.
