Kim Statham Ringen, DVM DACVIM (Oncology)

Kim is currently surviving stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer. As a veterinary oncologist, she writes from two perspectives: as someone knowledgeable about the world of oncology medicine and as a thriving cancer patient reimagining her life. Kim hopes to help others by writing and sharing her story as she “re-purposes her purpose.” She lives in Denver with her husband, three dogs, cat and seven chickens.
Even in a period of change, I still look at my dear husband frozen in time due to this disease.
