Stupid Cancer: You Know What It Is

On the show today, I'm so thrilled to welcome here live in-studio Alison Silberman, CEO at Stupid Cancer (my old job, as you may know), and Shannon Wyant, a fellow AYA cancer survivor and sitting member of the Stupid Cancer Board of Directors (also my old job as you may know.) The best conversations are those without an agenda that manifest from their own chemistry and organic magic. And what you're about to hear is no exception. So prepare your Wayback machine and your magic eight ball for a "wikipedic" throwback to how the sausage was — and continues to be made — for the largest young adult support community in the world. This one's for Annie Goodman, Jason Mlot, Chad Whitman, Ali Powers, Emily Morrison, Erica Paul, and Lauren Scott.For more information, visit https://OffScripMedia.com and follow @MZOutofPatients, @MatthewZachary, @VaxOnPod, and @OffScripMedia on Twitter.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

This Little Diagnostic Went To Market…

On the show today, I'm thrilled to welcome – LIVE IN STUDIO — Liz Cormier-May, CEO of Mammogen, and Marty Keiser, CEO at IV Bioholdings. It's hard to blend funny, entertaining wit with healthcare jargon like diagnostics, market access, go-to-market strategy, etc. And yet, somehow, we did it. The process is gnarly and ridiculous but, now more than ever, it's actually possible to NOT GET CANCER because of much more accessible and affordable diagnostics. Some of them are free; some are even over the counter. But getting into the hands of doctors or retail consumers is a whole other story, let alone issues with the FDA and safety. Well, we cut through all that crap and get to the brass taxes of how the only real thing moving the needle are consumers who vote with their wallets.For more information, visit https://OffScripMedia.com and follow @MZOutofPatients, @MatthewZachary, @VaxOnPod, and @OffScripMedia on Twitter.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?

Today, LIVE here at OffScrip Media studios, I welcome my incomparably talented friend Rebecca Cherry. She and I met almost 20 years ago. We hit it off as members of a niche-within-a-niche club, that being young adult cancer survivor professional musician/composers. And when I say incomparably talented, I mean incomparably talented: Rebecca is a singer, songwriter, model, entrepreneur, and internationally-acclaimed violinist who has performed and recorded with the likes of Adele, Beyonce, Common, Jay Z, and the Jonas Brothers with appearances on Letterman, Conan, Fallon, the MTV Music Awards, and The Grammys. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Be Rebecca Cherry, because she's performed there, too. And if that's not enough, she's a single mom raising a beautiful daughter named Ara. What's she's chosen to do with the life she has been given is not only inspirational but the very embodiment of what it means to get busy living.

Not Your Father's Pharma Conference

On the show today, it's a spotlight on NAMAPA (National Association of Medication Access & Patient Advocacy) with Co-Founders Elizabeth Johnson LPN and Melissa Paige, CPhT. Liz started her career in immunology and moved into the world of "medication access," which is healthcare between the patient and the doctor, where issues of access, pricing, prescriptions, and navigating the complexities of the system are all managed on behalf of the patient. As a certified Pharmacy Tech, Melissa lives in a world of reimbursement and access challenges in her previous roles, which is also code for "how medicine gets to the patient." NAMAPA is the presenting sponsor of the inaugural Healthcare Advocate Summit for Advocates by Advocates held on September 8-10 in Galveston Island, Texas. This conference is slated to be the premier event for anyone involved in patient access, navigation, and reimbursement.

Matthew Zachary

My name is Matthew Zachary. I am your advocate.

Why? Because when you enter the "Shit Happens" store, there's no one to greet you. I spent most of my 20s in that store. For those like me, who are lucky enough to have completed their shopping, I believe it to be incumbent upon us to become the greeters we wished we had.

In 2007, I founded Stupid Cancer and gave birth to the young adult cancer movement. The Stupid Cancer Show broke all the rules and gave a voice to millions.

And now it's time to go OffScrip. Join me on this new adventure as I continue to galvanize the patient voice, blow up the status quo, and make big dents in the universe.

After all, we are all very fortunate to not have ordinary lives.
