CROWDRISING SINCE: Mar 30, 2010
Stuff About Me:
I am a uterine cancer survivor, but was misdiagnosed and mistreated for a peri-menopausal condition I didn't have. My doctors told me I was experiencing symptoms because of a long list of reasons – I was too young, too thin, even eating too much spinach! I was prescribed hormones to treat the symptoms, but my doctors didn’t order the proper diagnostic tests. At the time, I didn’t know to ask why or why not, because I was just happy to be told I was too young for something! But finally after an endometrial biopsy, my greatest fear was confirmed; I had cancer. It took me two years and eight doctors before finally being told I had a gynecologic cancer.

In 2002, I wrote Cancer Schmancer, to tell my story of survival and I soon realized that what happened to me had happened to so many women like me. The book was not the end but rather the beginning of a life mission to improve women's healthcare in America.

I started Cancer Schmancer in 2007 to transform women from patients into medical consumers, and to shift this nation's priority from searching for a cancer cure towards prevention and early detection of cancer.
