"My professional life is focused on providing information, education and counseling to people with cancer and their partners about sexual changes that can occur during and after treatment.
But there is another important aspect to this work; I want every person with cancer to be able to have a discussion about sexuality with their health care providers. And so I travel around the world, teaching health care providers to ask their patients about this important part of quality of life."
