S02 E09 Advocacy from a Legislator's Perspective: Rep. Wasserman Shultz
Show Notes

Following our episode on policy and the power of patient advocacy, we felt it important to hear from someone on the receiving end of our advocacy work. In other words, patient advocacy from a legislator's perspective.  Specifically, we wanted to speak with Representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz, a breast cancer survivor herself and someone who has worked hard for more than a decade on laws to help Americans impacted by breast cancer. We were joined by Metavivor Stage IV Stampede Florida captain Abigail Johnston, who is an inspirational advocate in her own right. So think of this as a snapshot of the kind of conversations countless advocates have had in the past with members of Congress. But this time with a congressperson who's actually put her votes and actions to work for all of us.  Also joining us is Maimah Karmo, President of the Tigerlilly Foundation, speaking about her friendship and work with Rep. Wasserman Shultz over the years.
