For more than 17 years, Dr. Friedman has been educating cancer patients about taking control of their own healing process. She founded the South Florida Thyroid Cancer Survivor’s Association (ThyCa) after she was diagnosed and couldn’t find a support group specific to her own cancer. In 2015 Marla was diagnosed with cancer yet again. A diagnosis of breast cancer was shocking and led to surgeries and treatment. While working on her book The Good Cancer, Marla lost both her mother and mother-in-law to cancer within the same year.
Dr. Marla Friedman is a full-time professor of business and entrepreneurship. She is a best-selling Amazon author and national speaker on cancer topics. Marla is a founding member of Lighthouse Dragons SOS, a dragon boat team for breast cancer survivors based in Jupiter, FL.
