Lauren Thomas graduated from University of Miami with a B.A. in Psychology. She joined the Engage Initiative because she believes every person has the right to healthcare, regardless of their physical or mental status. Especially when it comes to cancer care, every person should be treated with the same amount of unique attention, striving to make the road to being cancer-free attainable for all. This matters to her because she believes it is important that those with cancer and a serious mental illness know they are not alone in their cancer care journey.
