Facing a health care crisis can be a challenge, often times leaving patients and caregivers overwhelmed and not sure where to turn. Kim shares her experience as a breast cancer patient, and those of friends and family, who have been in “the system” as patients and caregivers. Kim shares practical advice – encouraging her audience to become their own advocates as it relates to their health. In the area of health and wellness, there are many ways to become an advocate. Advocate for yourself. Advocate for a family member or friend. Advocate for other individual patients who may not be able to speak for themselves. Kim believes that her own patient advocacy allowed her to get the best care possible. Breast cancer taught Kim the importance of asking the hard questions, the importance of taking action and the importance of being proactive. She leaves her audiences empowered to do their homework and arm themselves with information, to build their medical team, to establish strong communication, to ask the hard questions, to not be afraid to get second opinions and to not only find their voice, but make it heard. Kim leaves you inspired to take control of your own health and your own life.
