From Cancer to Capitol Hill

In this week’s episode of CURE Talks Cancer, we speak with Rose Gerber, director of patient advocacy at CPAN, about her experience with breast cancer, how she became an advocate and how her journey helped her to see beyond the cancer experience.

PUBLISHED September 06, 2018
As a young mother, Rose Gerber faced a HER2-positive breast cancer diagnosis at an early stage in life – and during a time where this disease had poorer outcomes. Despite this feat, Rose used her personal experience, in combination with her professional skillset, to help other patients with cancer through the Community Oncology Alliance Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN).

Since, Rose – who is the director of patient advocacy at CPAN – has met with legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss cancer policy issues and has also assisted in developing programs across the country.

In this week’s episode of CURE Talks Cancer, we speak with Rose about her experience with breast cancer, how she became an advocate and how her journey helped her to see beyond the cancer experience.
