Lillian Kreppel

Lillian Kreppel is an anal cancer thriver, public speaker, entrepreneur, and changemaker. Over the course of her career in health, wellness and hospitality, she has successfully developed marketing strategies, public relations and business plans, and sales initiatives for multi-million dollar corporations. An anal cancer diagnosis in 2017 became the catalyst for her to combine her expertise and skills to end the disease. She has since become a powerful warrior, activist, and relentless pioneer advocating for the prevention and treatment of HPV & anal cancer. Her goal is to inspire others with her personal journey and to empower them with the education and awareness they need to manage their own health.

"I am on a mission to change the negative stigma associated with whispering the word HPV & anal cancer with my unceasing passion to make this virus and cancer a thing of the past. HPV & Anal Cancer desperately needs a voice – I am that voice!"
