"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"
When dealing with any cancer especially a rare cancer, advocacy is a lifeline.
Learn why cancer advocacy is literally in my blood! Being diagnosed with cancer is akin to being dropped into the ocean during a hurricane. You can see the boat and you can see the shore, but you do not know how to get to either. I try to be that boat guiding people to the shore filled with world renowned cancer physicians and experts and support in all areas of their lives.
