A few highlights from the show:

1. It is important to know the difference between a local hospital and a research hospital.

2. Ask if a clinical trial is available if your treatment is not working. Ask for financial assistance when considering a clinical trial. Be willing to ask for what you need.

3. Patient education is critical, and doctors need to speak "patient" language. 

4. There are more cancer survivors than ever before. Cancer will be treated as a chronic disease soon.

5. Cancer is sneaky! You have to think outside the box.

6. Learn more about the All of Us Research Program.

About Me:

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, out of the blue. I did not have any prior health concerns or issues.

Fast forward, the dreaded cancer diagnosis opened my eyes, introduced me to my purpose, and lead me to where I am today.

As a Cancer Doula, I use my 10-years of experience with cancer to support and guide others diagnosed with cancer. Many people are not familiar with what a cancer doula is. Think of me as a personal health care advocate.
