Patient Advocate & Co-founder, My Life Is Worth It

Expertise

A cancer survivor (multiple myeloma, diagnosed in March of 2009), I am a patient advocate who attends major cancer meetings, live tweets and/or gives voice to the patient at regional and local events in the New York area..

My background is varied - Princeton graduate and Columbia MBA, who worked on Wall Street for over 20 years, former major league pitcher from 1981-83 with the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals, currently a Visiting Professor in Management at Yeshiva University.

My current goal: to push for patient (and doctor) access and choice in treatments to fight chronic diseases.

AVAILABILITY: less than 10 hours/week
