Woman to Woman

Woman to Woman is a program of The Mount Sinai Hospital, Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Social Work Services. We provide one-to-one emotional support and mentoring to women undergoing treatment for gynecologic cancer (cervical, uterine, endometrial, vaginal and ovarian cancers) their families and the partners who support them through this difficult time. We help empower women to advocate for themselves, providing hope through example, and offering ongoing emotional support. The program was started in 2003 by Valerie Goldfein, an ovarian cancer survivor. As a patient she felt scared and alone and wanted to connect with someone who had survived the disease, knew first-hand what she was going through, and could provide her with hope. After she completed treatment and went into remission, Valerie worked with her Mount Sinai gynecologic oncologist, the Mount Sinai Department of Social Work, and The Auxiliary Board at Mount Sinai to launch Woman to Woman. Woman to Woman also includes a program that provides support to the partners of women in treatment for gynecologic cancer.
