Cancer Survivor Pat Elliott
March 30, 2015
Phoenix resident Pat Elliott has survived Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, a rare cancer that used to be terminal. Her form of cancer is featured in the book, “Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies,” and she has since become a patient advocate who speaks about her disease across the globe. Elliott survives by taking a medicine that manages cancer on the genetic level. She’s appeared with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, another CML survivor. Elliott will discuss cancer from the patient’s perspective.
