Like many women, Claudia knew something wasn’t quite right when she began to experience an unusual pain in her pelvic area and excessive sweating while at work. Later in the night, she ended up in the hospital with emergency surgery, and that is when everything changed.

Claudia underwent surgery and six rounds of chemotherapy, but her scans were still not clear. Shortly after chemo, Claudia’s mother came across The Clearity Foundation and immediately felt that is was a sign.

“Clearity was my rock! They were a huge support system and helped guide what questions I should ask my doctors. I’m so thankful for this organization. 

My first doctor gave me no hope. She even told me not to save my eggs because I wouldn’t live long enough to have children. Then I found Clearity and Dr. Deb Zajchowski. She gave me answers about my cancer, and the courage to find a new doctor and a new treatment plan. Three years later I’m planning for my wedding and my future.”
