CQ Ambassadors are a growing community of patients, caregivers, experts, and survivors who believe in change, have personal experience fighting cancer, and believe in the power of shared information, experiences, and tools - all in the name of hope. 

CQ Ambassadors help others through the CQ platform in their fight against cancer -  whether you are newly diagnosed, further along in your journey, or a survivor, we hope they can prove a valuable resource for you. They help us vet resources, medical treatments, and cutting edge research. 

Use the contact buttons below each Ambassador to directly reach out to that Ambassador and they will first connect with you via email within 48 hours. 

We are constantly looking for additional CQ Ambassadors. Apply today:
