Some advanced-stage ovarian cancer patients are long-term survivors. These patients may provide the key to long-term survival and bring hope to all women with Stages III and IV ovarian cancer. This research project will look at features within tumors along with genetic, quality of life, and lifestyle features that predict for long-term survival for patients with Stages III and IV ovarian cancer. If you are a 8 year or more stage III or stage IV ovarian cancer survivor, your participation can help to improve the treatment, survival, and survivorship of all women.
