Why I Joined Carevive
When I was 13 years old I had the opportunity to travel to Senegal and live with a family in the small fishing village of Yoff. Yoff is a beautiful village on the coast of West Africa with no garbage disposal system expect the goats which roamed freely, eating the natural waste. A village plagued by the sudden and growing accumulation of “western”, non-biodegradable garbage. A problem which I became acutely aware of my role in.
What does this have to do with cancer care and Carevive you may be asking? The truth is everything! This experience had a profound effect on how I viewed the world and this lesson of the impact, for better or worse, a single person can have has echoed throughout my life since. Because of it I am an adamant believer in leaving this world better than you found it, in being able to feel good about what you do every day and, as cliché as it may sound, to being a part of the solution – and that is exactly what I have found at Carevive.
Carevive is a company deeply committed to improving an experience that, too often, leaves people scared and unsure of where to turn. Carevive is leading the way in personalized, patient-centered cancer care and never in my life have I had the privilege of working with a team so dedicated to what they do and so motivated to make a difference. It is my honor to be a part of this solution.
