“I have to continue to fight, and that’s what I have been doing for ten years now.” With the help of her husband and AdventHealth Cancer Institute’s Dr. Robert Holloway, Susan Provost has never had to face cancer alone.

Like Susan and many other cancer survivors, ovarian cancer is an ongoing battle that changes your life and even you as a person. “The day she was diagnosed, we weren’t sure what our journey was going to be like. Once we met Dr. Holloway, we felt better about it because of the hope that he instilled in us,” shared Ed, Susan’s husband.

For the past ten years, Susan has experienced a series of relapses and recurrences, with her most recent in 2020. After trying various cancer treatments, she began running out of options for treatment. Dr. Holloway suggested Susan try a clinical trial as a next step in treatment.

Susan was able to participate in a clinical trial that has kept her going for two more years. Though the primary goal of cancer research is to find a cure, a secondary and equally important goal is to improve the quality of life of our cancer patients. Susan shared that, “this clinical trial gives me hope and willingness to fight.”

AdventHealth Cancer Institute has helped countless patients and families like Susan receive the best care and provide the advanced clinical research needed to make our clinical trials tomorrow’s standard of care. Give today and be a part of bringing hope to our cancer patients.
