In this episode of the GOSH Podcast, we are joined by Tracy Weiss, the Executive Director and Chief Creative Officer of the Chick Mission. She is a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 30. Having her insurance company denied her claim to preserve her fertility under it being ‘elective’, she realized that she has to get revenge by making sure no other woman would have to go through the same thing. Throughout this first episode with Tracy, you'll get a chance to hear her entire story from diagnosis to her work with the Chick Mission.
Chick Mission is a national community of patients, survivors, parents, doctors, advocates, friends and loved ones who are all working together to preserve hope and choice for women battling cancer in the US. Their mission is to ensure every young woman newly diagnosed with cancer has the option to preserve their fertility through direct financial support, educational programs and advocacy for legislative change.
