Welcome to the website of Wendy S. Harpham, a doctor of internal medicine, 25-year cancer survivor, best-selling author, nationally recognized speaker and patient advocate. From both sides of the stethoscope, Wendy has used her useful perspective to help patients become Healthy Survivors--namely, survivors who get good care and live as fully as possible.
Since her diagnosis, Wendy has played an important role in raising awareness among clinicians and in empowering patients to talk with their healthcare team about the challenges of survivorship, such as post-treatment fatigue, raising healthy children when a parent has cancer. and participating in clinical trials. Committed to fostering healing clinician-patient bonds, Wendy's latest projects focus on helping patients nourish healthy hopes and narrow the gap between knowing what to do and actually doing it.
