Ronda became an advocate for others, creating the Whipple Warriors. Through her advocacy she met Maryann Wahmann, the founder of Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network (NCAN). Maryann insisted that Ronda get checked, because her cancer could come back. She did, it did, and as Ronda says, “She saved my life.”
