Linda is interested in bringing public awareness to metastatic breast cancer. She is passionate about scientific research to support quality of life and survivorship issues among people with stage IV breast cancer, as well as legislative advocacy to support drug parity, expanded protections through Medicaid and Medicare, and improvements to the Medicare system.

I hope to make other metastatic breast cancer sisters feel less lonely and isolated by sharing valuable information and connections to live life to the fullest.
