No stranger to cancer in the professional realm, Dr. Heath Schuback also holds a personal connection as well. Schuback was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma at 19 years old. Her own experience fueled her determination to find cures for childhood cancers, leading her to her current position as a researcher for childhood AML.
Schuback's experience was very unique in that her sister was diagnosed with cancer around the same time and the two battled the disease together.
