  • Making A Difference Through Involvement And Advocacy

    Debra Madden is happy to speak at length about her role as a patient advocate. She is well educated on her subject, thoughtful, and passionate as she discusses the honor of representing the voices of patients, as a member of numerous regional and national panels addressing cancer research. The Newtown resident is a two-time survivor of cancer, and since her first diagnosis at the age of 22 in 1987, she has pursued a goal of making medical information accessible and understandable to patients.
