“After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, Sabine Schwab was looking for a new “purpose in life.” She found this as a volunteer and advocate for the brain tumor cause. Sabine began as a volunteer with the ABTA through the BT5K run/walk in New York City and continues to be actively involved on the planning committee.
“There are so many people that show up each year, and it’s beautiful to see the power of us coming together and being there for one another,” Sabine said when asked what is special about the event.
Since then, Sabine has been involved in a variety of volunteer projects for the ABTA, including being a Research Grant Reviewer, a Volunteer Leadership Workshop participant, a panelist on the Patient and Caregiver Panel at the New York Partners in Treatment & Care Meeting, and more. The variety of volunteer opportunities and ways to make an impact is what Sabine appreciates most about being an ABTA CommYOUnity™ volunteer
This year, Sabine made a commitment to become even more involved as an inaugural member of the ABTA’s Volunteer Advisory Council. She is “excited to make an even bigger impact” and use the skills she acquired in her career to support the volunteer program at a higher level. You can connect with Sabine on Twitter at @Sabine_NJ.”
