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!
Triage Cancer is proud to have had Camille as a member of our Speakers Bureau. She was an invaluable member of our community.
Camille Scheel was author of Camp Chemo: Postcards Home from Metastatic Breast Cancer, Beaver’s Pond Press, 2015. The book was based on her CaringBridge blog which she started after being diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer at the age of 38. Her two kids were in 1st grade and one year old. She restarted that blog when she learned the breast cancer metastasized to her bones almost 5 years after being “cured”.
Camille was passionate about educating others about life as a young survivor with Stage IV breast cancer. She was a breast cancer research reviewer for the Department of Defense Congressional Funded Medical Research Program and was a trained Hear My Voice Advocate for Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
Her media interviews include radio, video, podcast, blog and print publications including Minnesota Public Radio, Conquer: The Patient Voice Magazine, St. Paul Pioneer Press and HealthCommU and Living Beyond Breast Cancer blogs.
She held a Master’s Degree in Communication, and taught public speaking, worked as a professional musician and as a non-profit fundraiser in the years before cancer changed her path.
Camille is survived by her husband Wade, daughter Vivian, and son Jackson.
