Three years ago, Jon wanted to continue his passion of serving cancer patients by developing the presentation for today. He found that in speaking with other cancer patients and more importantly no matter what type of cancer you have most of us go through an emotional rollercoaster. He felt it was imperative to have a conversation from a survivor’s perspective vs. professional or clinical perspective.
