Joan LundenKeynote Speaker
An award-winning journalist, bestselling author, motivational speaker, and women’s health & wellness advocate, Joan Lunden has been a trusted voice in American homes for more than 30 years. In June 2014, Lunden was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. Lunden turned her diagnosis into an opportunity to help others. She blogged throughout her cancer treatment and wrote a memoir Had I Known, which documents her battle, and reflects on her life and career. Lunden advocates for patients on Capitol Hill, and actively communicates with the cancer community through her social media and on JoanLunden.com.
Kat’s Ribbon of Hope, Inc. was established in 2013 to provide financial assistance to women who would otherwise not be able to afford early detection and treatment services for breast cancer. These women die at twice the rate of those who can afford medical attention. Our intent is to save lives by making critical information and services more accessible to women.
