“I’m your everyday woman who is a self-taught advocate, an underdog…I empowered myself through education. I am a rebel who refused to accept substandard care…I’m a prime example of why cancer research works—I am alive because of it…My goal is to inspire and empower others to take charge of their medical narratives and to give them strength.”
