Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a Congressional Briefing as part of the NCCR’s Cancer 101 and the Cancer Moonshot. Here are some photos from the (amazing) experience as well as video of the entire briefing. It’s a slog (not a brief briefing) but I must say that my fellow panelists were stellar and you may learn a thing or two. As for me, I simply did my best to represent the patient viewpoint.

I just want to say thank you- to you Linnea, for being so brave, so proactive, and as always so inspiring!
Thank you Chrissy 🙂
You are inspiring to so many. I can’t remember how i first encountered your blog, but i am always excired (and as a cancer survivor myself, i’m always relieved) to get a new blog entry from you. Yours is the only cancer blog i follow. I shsred you with a good friend whose husband out of the blue found out he had stage 4 aggressive prostate cancer. I told them that the point in fighting was to get to see your kids grow up. Marry and have babies. It is to enjoy life everyday while you can, and it is to hope a true cure comes along in time to help you. You onspired them, too. There is still life worth living after such a terrifying diagnosis. Thank you for sharing your journey. You are alwsys in my thoughts and prayers.
Nancy, thank you for your kind words and thoughts. Feeling connected to others is a big part of what keeps me going and I appreciate hearing from you. Big hugs.
