Welcome Sasha Quijano-Edwards, BSN, RN
Pediatric Clinical Trial Coordinator & Patient Navigator
We are pleased to announce that Sasha Quijano-Edwards, BSN, RN has chosen to volunteer her time as a Pediatric Clinical Trial Coordinator & Patient Navigator for the End Brain Cancer Initiative.
Fighting to end brain cancer is important to Sasha because of her youngest daughter Ava, who was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM). "I can’t imagine losing another child and want to prevent that happening to anyone else," she said. "Helping people is what life’s all about and I’m happy to choose that path, every time."
In her role as Pediatric Clinical Trial Coordinator & Patient Navigator, Sasha hopes to provide much needed support to patients and families. "I would like to help change the barriers we faced getting Ava into a clinical trial and help families navigate what to expect in the disease process. I always say, there’s no greater responsibility than protecting the lives of our children. Sometimes we only get to protect their quality of life. I want to help overwhelmed families through the struggle and let them know I’m here to support them through it all," said Sasha.
Statement from Dellann Elliott Mydland, President & CEO of the End Brain Cancer Initiative: "The End Brain Cancer Initiative (EBCI) is delighted to welcome Sasha Quijano-Edwards, BSN, RN, to our 'Direct Connect' Services & Program team. Sasha will be a vital part of continuing to expand EBCI's Pediatric Resources. She will also assist patients and families in accessing studies, clinical trials, and treatments. Please join me in welcoming Sasha to our EBCI team and family."
