Monday, July 25, 2016: The words of Barbara Brenner of Breast Cancer Action

Claiming Our Power to Make Change‏

"She changed the landscape of breast cancer forever."

Barbara Brenner changed our understanding of breast cancer and women's health activism. As director of Breast Cancer Action for nearly 20 years, she challenged corporate fundraising, the emphasis on awareness campaigns and the false representation of early detection as prevention. When she was diagnosed with the fatal disease ALS, she used her skills and scientific knowledge to advocate for herself and others with that illness.  A new book, So Much to Be Done, collects Brenner's writings about breast cancer, ALS, living and dying.  We speak with her life partner, Susie Lampert, and former BCA communications director Angela Wall.
