Speakers Bureau

Through Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau, cancer centers, hospitals, cancer organizations, and other groups that are coordinating educational events or cancer conferences 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.

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

Ruth Ebenstein


An American-Israeli writer/activist, Ruth has written and spoken about how an unexpected close friendship with a Palestinian emerged out of breast cancer. She is penning a memoir about her experience, entitled Bosom Buddies: How breast cancer fostered an unexpected friendship across the Israeli-Palestinian divide. Galvanized to help others, Ruth became an advocate, promoting women’s health. She has lobbied the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, and works with Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem to promote women’s cardiovascular wellness among populations with the greatest need: Ultra-Orthodox women, Arab Israeli women, and those with disabilities, in addition to the general Israeli population. She has also become a peace activist, speaking with Ibtisam Erekat about their sisterhood and the ties that bind us all. Ruth’s story has been covered by the BBC, NPR, The Atlantic, & Alhurra TV. Her uplifting message: you can turn something bad into something good. You can meet an “other”… and therein, find YOU.

Topics: Advocacy, Breast Cancer, International Experiances, and Survivorship.
