Sabrina

BA, BSN, MS

Sabrina is a certified breast nurse navigator who works with both local and national cancer organizations. On the Cancer Support Helpline, she is a nurse navigator. At Gilda's Club of Metro Detroit, she is an active volunteer for their annual Bras for a Cause fundraiser and directs the Angel Pillow Project, which helps breast cancer survivors give back and support the newly diagnosed.

 

She has taken on several leadership roles over the years and along with being an invited speaker, she has organized and planned several breast cancer symposiums and fundraisers, and served as patient advocate for the Integrative Oncology Scholars program at the University of Michigan. She is passionate about patient advocacy and was back on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. this year to lobby for equal access to cancer care, affordable treatments, insurance coverage, and research funding.

As part of her commitment to community outreach, she has facilitated a hospital cancer action council aimed at providing young survivors the opportunity to develop research questions and educational programs in their communities.

She has been a clinical community nursing instructor at Wayne State University and conducts research on breast cancer health disparities and survivor advocacy. Sabrina believes that survivor advocates have the ability to use their voice and make significant contributions to improving cancer care through their involvement in cancer prevention, support, research, and public policy.
