Mrs. Lillie D. Shockney

Lillie D. Shockney, a two-time breast cancer survivor, has worked tirelessly to improve the care of breast cancer patients around the world. She began her career in 1983 with Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland and is trained as a registered nurse and a breast cancer patient navigator.

In 2008, the Johns Hopkins Board of Trustees appointed her to a chair as a University Distinguished Service Assistant Professor of Breast Cancer. This is the first time in the history of the institution that a hospital nurse has been appointed to a distinguished service designation. She was later promoted to Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 2011, she accepted the inaugural role as director of the cancer survivorship programs for the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins and was selected by Johnson & Johnson to receive their “Amazing Nurse” of the year award. In 2016 she was promoted to Professor of Surgery & Oncology, becoming the first nurse in the country to become a full professor in any academic school of medicine. Lillie is a published author and nationally recognized public speaker on the subject of breast cancer. She has written 15 books and more than 250 articles on this subject.
