North Richland Hills, TX
I am a professional cancer survivorship expert working at a leading lung cancer non profit. I have been a patient advocate for over 14 years.
I have the unique past experience of being both a cancer patient and a lung cancer caregiver and I represent the voice of the patient and caregiver in all that we do as a Foundation. I am the founder of the Lung Cancer Support Community, helped start the first lung cancer 5K and in-person support group and a recipient of numerous awards and articles. I sat on the board of Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education, past LiveSTRONG Leader, current member of AONN, ASCO and VMCC as well as collaborate with national organizations and healthcare providers across the country gaining valuable insight and knowledge. I contribute to articles & blogs and have been asked to speak at events with a special interest in cancer survivorship, patient support, caregiving, cancer advocacy training & the use of social media to promote good works.
AVAILABILITY: as required
Creating and managing the Foundation’s support programs, services and resources that help patients, caregivers and healthcare providers. Building and sustaining collaborations and partnerships with other organizations and healthcare providers and a robust online lung cancer community over multiple targeted and personalized platforms. I also manage advocates, advocacy opportunities and volunteers. I am also the Foundation's social media strategist, developing and executing social media campaigns.
I am the co-creator of Lung Cancer Support Community (LCSC). That non profit's website was the first of its kind to provide active chat forums and an online lung cancer support network for lung cancer patients and their family members. Today the message boards are an active service of LUNGevity Foundation and it holds over 404,000 posts.

Katie Brown is a joy with which to work. She was quick and responsive to our project needs, and was able to connect us with amazing resources in the lung cancer community. I would highly recommend Katie and hope to work with her again in the future.
