Danielle Murray

Research Advocate

I was born and raised on Long Island, New York where I presently reside. I am an attorney, specializing in the areas of matrimonial and family law. I lost my mother to stage IV colorectal cancer in 2007. She was diagnosed when she was 49 and passed away less than two years later, when I was 21 years of age. 

Goals as a Research Advocate

1. Raise awareness of early-onset colorectal cancer, not only virtually but in my community 

2. Become involved at local hospitals/cancer treatment centers to raise testing awareness and effect change in any way that I can, by providing support to caregivers

3. Participate in research from the perspective of a caregiver who has witnessed and dealt with the consequences of extremely poor pain and quality of life management
