Just in time for the 2019 Sparkle of Hope gala, WISC-TV shared the story of a patient who worked with David Kushner, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Gynecologic Oncology to access a clinical trial for uterine cancer.

A Sparkle of Hope introduces Sheree Motherwell, a patient who was referred to Kushner after being diagnosed with a rare uterine cancer. After a recurrence, Dr. Kushner and Sheree decided to try a clinical trial which, so far, is helping her. Sheree and her family are special guests at this year’s Sparkle of Hope Gala.

Watch the whole video to meet this amazing patient and learn about why supporting research and trials is so crucial to advancing our understanding of gynecologic cancers!
