Gwen is interested in: early detection of invasive lobular breast cancer and brain mets; self-advocacy in screening and testing; pregnancy-associated breast cancer and risk factors; and up-to-date information on breast cancer for everyone, including healthcare providers. She has experience with organizing events and projects. Her kids, friends, and family; being outside; being active; running; warmth, sarcasm and laughter; music; and baking all bring her joy.
I would like to contribute my voice to encourage people to self-advocate and take ownership of their circumstances. It's important for others to participate in their health care. We cannot leave it up to a medical team—we are at the center.
