Maya's Story

Philippines

When diagnosed in Manila with cervical cancer and underwent surgery locally, Maya also looked to PGH for clarification around secondary treatment. Her Personal Care Manager promptly guided her through the next steps. A multidisciplinary team of gynecologic oncologists from a top 1% ranked hospital in the US responded to the status of her condition with a proposed second phase of treatment consisting of radiation therapy. The radiation treatment protocol was also shared with Maya’s doctor in the Philippines, who agreed with the recommended course of treatment.
