Read my blog

I am a writer, patient-advocate, research partner, health care activist determined to use social media as a springboard to build relationships and develop communities. I've been invited to participate in peer review process for DoD and the NCI. I served as a patient advocate on a number of funded grant applications. I am presently working on four different research studies in the role of patient advocate. An independent advocate, I am a mentor and participant in AACR Scientist <-> Survivor program. have been interviewed in print media, on radio and have written guest articles for various outlets. My blog was named as one of the Best Breast Cancer Blogs by Healthline for six consecutive years. Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine named me as their 2017 Blogger of the Year. I was invited to join a handful of other breast cancer advocates at The White House to meet with high-level administrators to discuss how policy-makers might help reframe the breast cancer narrative. In my spare time, I found myself atop a 35-foot pole taking a leap of faith which was so invigorating, I opted to take this same Quantum Leap at Miraval a second time, years after my first experience.
