I Didn't Want Standard, I Wanted Exceptional


 I left the cancer centre day after day, absolutely stupified about what had just occurred to me.  Having spent 20 years in healthcare navigation for other people, I understood why it was so hard to self-advocate as a patient.  It was exhausting.  From quitting chemo to negotiating preventative tests and alternative care - in this talk, I share my own story of health, illness and taking a stand to educate the population about integrative cancer care.
