Marina Baroff, Senior Director, Service Innovation at Steps Through OC shines a light on the need to provide physical as well as emotional support to women living with ovarian cancer and their caregivers.  Marina talks about this new program of The Clearity Foundation with seed funding provided by the Susan Poorman Blackie Ovarian Cancer Foundation that matches patients and their caregivers with a professional ovarian cancer counselor at no charge.  This is not a support group but rather online, personalized treatment plans based on science and tailored to each person's unique situation.
