Episode # 19 - Walk The Way With Her with Leslie Ferris Yerger
Tune in as Leslie Ferris Yerger shares her story being a breast cancer survivor and her journey of walking the 500 mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain. She is a TedEX speaker, first time author of Probably Benign, and a women’s advocate with a laser focused mission. She was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in November 2017 after an ‘all clear’ mammogram and ultrasound, experiencing first hand the failings of our current breast cancer screening technologies. She is now determined to advance the next generation in breast cancer screening, so that her story does not become your story.
Armed with humor and wisdom, courage and grace, knowledge and scientific data, she speaks and writes in order to empower women everywhere to ask, learn, insist, and persist in order to get the breast cancer screening they so very much deserve.
