Monica Fawzy Bryant, Esq. and Joanna Fawzy Morales, Esq. are two cancer rights attorneys (and sisters) who saw the need to help individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, advocates, and health care professionals, navigate the plethora of legal and practical issues that arise after a diagnosis -- so they founded Triage Cancer. We speak with them about how cancer survivors can receive resources and education on legal issues needed during COVID-19 and beyond.

Cancer Convos: Survivorship. Advocacy. Policy

In Cancer Convos, leaders of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship talk with health care experts, providers, cancer survivors, caregivers, and advocates about cancer survivorship, advocacy, and policy efforts to improve cancer care. Shelley Fuld Nasso, NPP, is the CEO of this advocacy group with a strong mission. Formerly leading public policy with the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Shelley found her calling to advocacy as a dear friend lost his battle to cancer at only 43 years old. Now, she is bringing survivors and healthcare providers together with a new podcast. Lindsey Houff MPP is the Senior Policy Manager for NCCS. A dedicated advocate and graduate of Virginia Tech, Lindsey lost her father at a young age to Melanoma. The NCCS team is working to build a brighter future for those who have been affected by cancer. As NCCS aims to improve public policies, the advocates and survivors behind the story are inspiring and educational. Education, inspiration and connection, the keys to bringing survivors and healthcare together with a common goal; surviving cancer.
