Finding Your Inner Strength is Power

Meet Barbara

So is knowing UC San Diego Health System offers the most treatment options for gynecologic cancers in San Diego.

At the age of 49, diagnostic surgery confirmed her doctor’s suspicion: Barbara Romero had ovarian cancer. But being a mountain biker, Barbara rose to the challenge. Prior to chemotherapy, she angrily told her cancer, “You are not going to beat me.”

Of course, it didn’t hurt that Barbara’s UC San Diego Health System doctor is also a researcher. Or that, in the area, UC San Diego is involved in the most unique research studies on new drugs to fight ovarian cancer. Or that UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center is San Diego’s only NCI designated comprehensive cancer center, where discoveries become new treatment options. In remission now three years, Barbara is still amazed at the power of academic medicine.
