Interview With 5-yr. Breast Cancer Survivor and Cancer Scientist Noel Peters

I had the pleasure of meeting Noel Peters in July of 2018 when I was invited to speak at the company where she works, Foundation Medicine. We quickly bonded after learning we were both Stage IV cancer patients.

During our conversation we discussed:

  • What it’s like living with cancer
  • Her experience of learning about her diagnosis and how she shared her cancer diagnosis with her children
  • The uncertainty around her being staged with Advanced Breast Cancer
  • What it’s like being a cancer scientist and a cancer patient at the same time and how this experience has impacted her approach to her job
  • The definition and importance of palliative care and how it shouldn’t in any way be confused with hospice care
  • The impact her diagnosis had on her marriage and her family
  • Her thoughts on the annual “pink-washing” of America every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

To learn more about Foundation Medicine and the work they do listen to my interview with interview with Dr. Prasanth Reddy, Vice President of Medical Affairs: https://wehavecancershow.com/095
