Karin Hehenberger: Diabetes Diagnosis Drives Life-changing Innovations

I’m a huge believer in patient advocacy…I love when organizations like Lyfebulb help make life easier for the patient. Having been a cancer patient for over 16 years, it’s important to me to share my story and best practices on how to navigate with cancer. If you know someone who has been recently diagnosed or is dealing with regular cancer treatments – please send them my book “Happiness through Hardship” – a guide and journal for patients, caregivers and friends. I wrote it to help others through cancer and find a little joy along the way.
