Meet Pat Wetzel
There is a line in my pilot’s log book, “Pilot In Command”.
It means that the responsibility for the flight is mine.
It’s an empowering metaphor for all my travels.
–Pat Wetzel, Founder, CancerRoadTrip
Pat Wetzel is the visionary behind CancerRoadTrip. In her former life, after Wharton Business School, she worked in the world of international finance.
And then, with a trip to the West Coast, she became captivated by the sport of soaring. For over a decade, this sport provided adventure and wisdom through aerial travel.
In 2009 a supposedly incurable cancer diagnosis sent Pat on a serious quest for what creates health. She realized that her experiences weren’t unique, and she founded the Anti-Cancer Club, a free website of cancer resources.
Three rounds of chemo, radiation and surgery ensued over the next several years until a remission was realized. It was time for a break.
It was time for a road trip.
And along the way, there were many lessons.
One is that travel heals.
Pat is our Guide to a bit of healing adventure.
