Live at CancerCon with Sara Davenport: Panelist & Young Adult Survivor

Listen in as Guest Speaker, Shona Lovie, from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) speaks with Sara Davenport, a young adult survivor and Blood Cancer panelist, onsite at CancerCon 2018 in Denver, Colorado. Having been diagnosed with thyroid cancer first and later with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Sara talks about her journey, how she was introduced to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, fertility, long- term and late effects of cancer treatment, and the importance of patience during one’s journey. Sara also shares how she combats ‘survivorship guilt’ with the decision to live a life that strives to understand and help others as a way to ‘pay it forward’ and honor those who have passed.

CancerCon is the annual, international gathering, organized by Stupid Cancer, that brings together patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, and activists, along with oncology team professionals and the healthcare industry through a shared goal of improving young adult cancer health outcomes.
