About Merijane Block
Merijane Block lived with cancer for 25 years, 20 of them Stage IV. When she worked for pay, it was for non-profit organizations focused on education and advocacy for women with cancer. Afterward, she co-facilitated support groups, one for young adults with cancer, another for young women with breast cancer: Bay Area Young Survivors. Later, the main focus of her work in this realm was the CCHP alumni support group, and patient advocacy at a variety of levels. Her writing has appeared in Art. Rage.Us., Art and Writing by Women with Breast Cancer, The First Look, Lake: A Collection of Voices, and online at Birdland Journal.
