Bio: Rebecca Esparza, MBA, is a two-time cancer survivor (ovarian and thyroid). She has travelled all over the world to represent cancer survivors at various cancer advocacy activities, speaking engagements, committees and forums. Her long term survivorship of ovarian cancer (20 years) has motivated her to speak up for the underserved and marginalized; especially those without access to healthcare and/or health insurance. As a cancer patient who has experienced a cancer diagnosis with no health insurance, she has assisted countless patients and caregivers access services and programs to assist in their personal journeys. Her passion is making life better for children, whether it’s lovingly spoiling her two nephews or helping dreams come true for critically ill children through her volunteer work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
