In this very special episode of Bladder Cancer Matters, host Rick Bangs talks with Karen Sachse.  Karen has a one-in-a-million perspective on bladder cancer because she is an oncology nurse, a nurse navigator, a bladder cancer survivor and was a caregiver to her husband, Roger, who passed away from the disease.  She is also a very active patient advocate with the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network.

Rick and Karen talk about:

  • Her bladder cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Caring for her husband when he got bladder cancer
  • How her late husband benefited from BCAN’s programs and services
  • Why she participates in the Walks to End Bladder Cancer and thinks that others should too
  • How to get involved with BCAN
