Judith L. Pearson, best-selling author of The Wolves at the Door: The True Story of America’s Greatest Female Spy, recently released her latest book – From Shadows to Life: A Biography of the Cancer Survivorship Movement – which is part medical history and part inspirational biography chronicling the birth of the cancer survivorship movement and the creation of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) and its impact on American cancer survivors.
In this interview, Judith shares some details of her journey as a cancer survivor and how physicians might find it beneficial to discuss survivorship with their patients, regardless of where they may be in the course of their diagnosis and treatment.
Judith will be hosting a virtual storytelling event for A2ndAct.org on March 21, 2021. Click here to learn more and attend or contribute.
