Building a Team

In 2010, Annette McElhiney discovered the Clearity Foundation in her research after she was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer.

Five years later, Annette is an ovarian cancer survivor and advocate who continuously shares her story and artwork with the world and the Clearity Foundation. In her latest blog post on the Clearity Portal, she reflects on team building and how her group helped her cope and eventually beat ovarian cancer.

She writes, “Initially, when one is diagnosed with cancer, ones’ reactions jump from shock, to disbelief, to confusion, to anger, to worry, to fright, to despair, and, not necessarily in any particular order. Yet, once the surgery is over, the pathology report back, and the chemo started, what do you do next?”
