Prissi Cohen possesses a thorough knowledge of medical speak and understands how to translate it to the lay person while maintaining the urgency necessary when resolving medical situations. A Columbia University School of Nursing graduate, she worked in East Coast hospitals where she quickly discovered that many patients “didn’t know what they didn’t know.” Prissi began to step in on the patients’ behalf when they were receiving instructions or diagnoses ensuring the information was easy to understand and possible to implement at home.

After leaving the hospital system, Prissi soon founded and managed the California Chapter of the National Neurofibromatosis Foundation. This was followed by her tenure as the Director of Operations for Michael Milken’s Santa Monica-based prostate cancer organization, CaP CURE where she was able to make invaluable connections with medical professionals to whom laypeople typically do not have access.

In these high-level, non-profit positions, Prissi was often the first person to field calls from newly diagnosed patients and their families. Many times, the callers were afraid, anxious and looking for information they could understand and use to help themselves or their loved ones. With compassion always in mind, Prissi shared information that provided hope, courage and solutions.

Being backed by such large healthcare organizations gave Prissi an advantage that not many other advocates can claim: She was able to open doors that other advocates could not access. Over time, she has maintained those relationships–and others–allowing her to call on her contacts to help clients today.

Dear Prissi,

As I think about the last six years–beautiful if difficult–I realize that the team of warriors all leads back to you. From Eric to Mimi to Dr. Li, acupuncturists and home health aides and above all your spirited optimism-I am so grateful to have found you. You gave my family the greatest possible gift of more time. Thank you.

With love and gratitude,
