Y98 - April 2017
Nowadays, Ariel Shifter walks into a chemotherapy unit not to be treated, but rather to work. Shifter was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 21 and was treated at St. Louis' Siteman Cancer Center. At the time she was a student at Mizzou, working on her Ph.D in psychology.
A few months after her treatment ended, Shifter felt an urge to make a real change in her life and switched her career path to fit her newfound passion: cancer. Shifter sees her diagnosis in this point in her life as a sign that she was meant to make this change. Now, as a clinical Trial Coordinator, she helps track the progress of patients treatments and making sure they are comfortable.
