Patient Leader

I've been poking fun at healthcare since long before I wound up with a cancer diagnosis - hilariously, one of the first bits I wrote for my standup comedy set was about mammograms. So of course I wound up with a breast cancer dx in late '07, and turned that into "Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift" which became an Amazon best seller in '09. I now produce a podcast (in addition to the ones I produce for medical societies via the Wiley & Son publishing house) called Healthcare Is HILARIOUS! Because it totally is.
