When my sister Suzy and I were growing up, one of the things our parents always stressed was that, “with perseverance and courage, you can succeed at anything.”

When Suzy was losing her battle against breast cancer, I promised her that yes, I would do everything within my power to end the kind of suffering she and so many other women were experiencing because of breast cancer.
At that time, so little was known about the disease, and people didn’t even want to talk about it in public. Treatment options were limited and so, unfortunately, was the life expectancy of most breast cancer patients.
