Shortly after my memoir was published in December of 2018, I was approached by an organization called Patient Power to be a guest in a webcast they were producing. A local television appearance followed, and now I’ve been working more closely with Patient Power as well as other organizations. I hope all these resources will help patients and caregivers understand and navigate their respective journeys.
