EBCI Expands Access to Pediatric Treatments

Pediatric Clinical Trial Coordinator & Patient Navigator

As EBCI expands to pediatrics; 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 from happening to anyone else," she said. "Helping people is what life’s all about and I’m happy to choose that path every time."

As a 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 our children's lives. 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." 

Sasha is a Registered Nurse with more than eighteen years of experience. She has been working in Case Management with St. Alexius Hospital in North Dakota since 2014.
