Advocacy Heals U, Tues., Oct. 22, 2:00 pm ET, 11:00 am PT, David Cowen, Ali’s Alliance

Guest: David Cowen, Ali’s Alliance. Alison Cowan was a 44-year-old litigation paralegal at the top of her career, and an active and enthusiastic member of her church and community. That all changed in 2010 when Alison and her husband David received the devastating results of a routine diagnostic procedure that revealed a 5cm malignant tumor. Subsequent imaging showed that the cancer was metastatic. Alison and David fought the fight and rode the rollercoaster for eleven months, but in the end Alison lost her battle. The Mission of Ali’s Alliance is to create and maintain a searchable online database of support and resources available to those individuals and families engaged in the day-to-day battle with cancer and caregiving, and to provide support through awareness. It is an incredible tool that any family with cancer should use to help them make the best decisions through the diligently updated research studies by cancer type available on the Website.
