Guidance to Women

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer and the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists provide a “guidance to women,” that is distributed via the Foundation for Women’s Cancer’s Allied Support Group (ASG) when new findings are announced or when SGO issues a new position statement that requires clarification in order to ensure an accurate understanding of the new findings or position statement on the part of gynecologic survivors and the larger community.
