Advocacy & Communications Subcommittee
The Advocacy and Communications Subcommittee works closely with all the other committees and subcommittees to share information both within OPCC and to the legislature, patients and the general public. The Subcommittee is made up of individuals who have a desire to communicate progress and facts as they relate to cancer control. This committee is also responsible for membership functions of OPCC, making recommendations to the Executive Board regarding membership changes.
Goals & Objectives:
- Increase Interest in Cancer Surveillance, Prevention, and Control Activities among State of Ohio Legislators and Organizational Policy Makers to Influence Policy and Systems Changes
During six months of chemotherapy, I kept working. I would have my chemotherapy on Friday afternoon, go home and sleep to ward off the nausea, and be back to work on Monday morning. I still remember very clearly each treatment, each x-ray, each time I had to have blood tests. But now I remember how it changed my life, how it made me more appreciative of the people and events in my life. I would have never thought that 22 years ago that I would be sharing my story, helping other cancer patients, and be a healthy, happy, wife and mother.
