Tell us about your cancer experience
I have experienced all aspects of cancer as part of my career, volunteerism, advocacy for myself and others, and most importantly as a survivor. I have no regrets about my journey with cancer because it is my belief that it defines my purpose in life.
Tell us about your work as an Ambassador
My work as an Ambassador allows me to reach out to people of color living in medically underserved communities, to reduce disparities in patients with breast, ovarian, uterine, cervical and metastatic breast cancer. By providing education and support services, I am able to promote awareness for positive health outcomes.
Why is being an Ambassador important to you?
The role of Ambassador is meaningful to me because as a survivor, I would like everyone to be able to call themselves a survivor. Although I know it is not realistic, I believe it is better to have a positive attitude about health outcomes to minimize stress.
I feel that being able to provide information as an Ambassador allows people to make informed decisions about their health – which can be the difference between life and death in some cases.
