Joslyn McArdle appointed to Board of Directors for the Joy US Foundation
Joslyn McArdle, a 2013 Leadership Institute graduate was appointed to the Joy US Foundation board of directors for 2020. Joslyn is serving as the Director of Communications and will oversee a website re-design and has already updated branding for the organization.
Ms. McArdle was also nominated and selected to serve as an Elevate Ambassador for the 2020 program year for the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS). As part of her position, she will work with NCCS to tailor a program that fits into the community and focuses on Elevating the Survivorship Initiative.
NCCS’ mission is to advocate for quality cancer care for all people touched by cancer. Founded by and for cancer survivors, NCCS created the widely accepted definition of survivorship and defines someone as a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis and for the balance of life.
NCCS has worked with legislators and policy makers to represent cancer patients and survivors in efforts to improve their quality of care and quality of life after diagnosis. Our unique niche in the cancer advocacy landscape is promoting policy change to ensure quality cancer care. Our vision is to be an advocacy organization that reflects the needs of all cancer survivors to effect policy change at the national level.
NCCS represents the millions of Americans who share a common experience – the survivorship experience – living with, through and beyond a cancer diagnosis. That experience has value and can be a transforming, positive force. NCCS also knows that cancer survivors and those who care for them face many challenges.
