After surviving cancer, I wanted to use my experience to help other people. Nadia Ali and I were invited to be a part of CPAN when we attended the 2013 Community Oncology Alliance(COA) National Convention in Orlando, Florida. We volunteered to start an Ohio Chapter of CPAN (COA Patient Advocacy Network). CPAN is a group that brings together patients, caregivers, friends and relatives, or anyone interested in learning how to be a advocate for cancer at the national level. Ohio CPAN will be a part of a national group that has one loud voice. We will strive to help members of government be more aware of issues faced by cancer patients, and ultimately improve cancer patient care through advocacy. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, I would like to personally invite you to the first meeting of CPAN on January 22, 2014 from 6-8pm at Oncology Hematology Care on 5053 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, OH 45226.
There will be food and refreshments. For more information please click the image below. I hope to see you there.
