Jen Vargas

Patient Leader

I am a Caregiver to my mom, Pam, whose battle with cancer I've shared for eight years on social media. We've lost half of our family to various forms of cancer and instead of being sad or mad about it, I decided to utilize my social media sites to educate and inform other Survivors like my mom, as well as other Caregivers like me. I have been an American Cancer Society & ACSCAN volunteer and advocate for 13 years. In 2008 I started the social media presence for two popular local events, Relay For Life of Hunter's Creek and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Orlando, the #1 Strides walk in the United States! I was named a Shorty Awards Finalist in their Keep Good Going category in 2014.
