Speakers Bureau

Through Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau, cancer centers, hospitals, cancer organizations, and other groups that are coordinating educational events can be connected with expert speakers on various cancer survivorship issues.

Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau also includes cancer survivors and caregivers who have experience sharing their cancer journey with a variety of audiences. If you are planning an event, it is a good idea to request speakers as early as possible. Some of our speakers are often booked months in advance.

Triage Cancer can also assist in the comprehensive coordination of educational events, in addition to providing speakers on specific topics.

Below you can learn more about each speaker, sort speakers by particular areas of expertise, and read about potential topics that you may want to include in your next event!

Biography

Marcia Donziger is a cancer survivor who believes a strong support community is critical for healing. During her treatment for advanced ovarian cancer at age 27, Marcia struggled with keeping friends and family informed. She felt guilty when she could not stay adequately connected to all of the people who wanted to help.

Marcia saw the need for an online support community for cancer patients, so in 2007, she founded MyLifeLine.org Cancer Foundation. Through MyLifeLine.org, cancer fighters and caregivers create websites to connect with their communities. Since its inception, more than 120,000 people have registered to give or receive support on MyLifeLine.org.

Marcia has been honored with the John Hickenlooper Unsung Hero Award and the Denver Channel’s Everyday Hero Award. MyLifeLine.org has been featured on the ABC, NBC and FOX affiliates in Denver and in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, The Denver Post, CURE magazine, and Colorado Expression magazine, among others. She has spoken before numerous audiences, including the European Society of Gynecological Oncologists as an advocate for cancer patients and their families, and at DIRECTV’s leadership conference on work/life balance. Marcia grew up in Anaheim, CA, and currently lives in Denver, CO, with her 8-year old twin boys.
