Katie Brown

Patient Leader

At age 22 I became a cancer survivor. At age 29 my dad was diagnosed with the deadliest cancer killer, lung cancer, and that's when I decided to fight alongside people with cancer to give them a voice, navigate them through their cancer journey and celebrate their survivorship. I lost my dad after only 11 months, but I haven't stopped honoring him. I am the Vice President of Support & Survivorship for LUNGevity Foundation and manage the Foundations social media. I am a cancer survivor and I am surviving stage 4 liver disease. I am the author of the books; Co-Surviving Cancer and Navigating Advocacy. I am a wife, a mom and a social media zombie.
