Allison Rosen Takes to TikTok

Today I talk to Allison Rosen, a science nerd, a TikTok star, a dance fanatic, a Myam Bialik look alike, and a cancer survivor. Allison was diagnosed with Stage II colon cancer at age 32. That was nearly ten years ago and ever since Allison has been using her personal experience as a cancer survivor and her training as a medical researcher to educate people about young adult cancer. She’s even taken to TikTok to talk about her ostomy bag, one of the permanent bodily changes she’s undergone since getting cancer. Allison now serves as the Project Director at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. And when she’s not working hard, she’s out living life to the fullest – on the dancefloor or on top of a surfboard.
