Member of the Steering Committee.
As a longtime member of the Minnesota Cancer Alliance, Lindy is very familiar with the need for Cancer Plan Minnesota and works daily to meet the goals of optimizing the quality of life of all affected by cancer and to eliminate disparities in the burden of cancer. She is the founder of Cancer Legal Line, a nonprofit providing pro-bono legal services to Minnesota cancer survivors. As an attorney, her expertise is in meeting the goals of the Alliance vis-à-vis the non-clinical aspects of cancer, namely legal needs stemming directly from a diagnosis. Employment and insurance needs are critically important for long-term survivors. As a charter member of the National Cancer Legal Services Network, Lindy works closely with other legal support providers and will be able to share information, resources, and best practices with the Steering Committee. Additionally, she is very familiar with a host of other non-clinical support services available to cancer survivors in Minnesota and will work to engage those providers in the work of the Alliance.
