Susan Armenti - Patient/Caregiver Scholarship 2014

Hello, my name is Susan Armenti.

My cancer woke me up in the middle of the night eighteen years ago with a sensation in my breast. The road since has been full of twists and turns clearly with some obvious success, since I am feeling good and here to tell the story but, also at times with misdiagnosis, allergic reactions, infections and botched surgery.

What I have learned from my experience I want to share so perhaps other patients would be more informed, empowered and knowledgeable about how to be an effective participant in their own healing. While doctors can provide the tools, the medicine and the procedures that address disease, it is essential the patient be actively involved in getting well.
