The advanced stage of her cancer diagnosis coupled with the rarity of her disease has helped Ferguson realize the need for increased public education about head and neck cancer and the important role that AACR programs like the Scientist Survivor Program (SSP) play in the cancer community. "Interacting with other advocates helps me to learn more about different cancer types, and also provides me with the knowhow to better utilize the gifts and talents of the advocates at OSU," she said.
