Every day, 567 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 25 years old when my amazing grandmother, Marge Nance, lost her battle with breast cancer.
My grandmother never met a stranger, and when you were with her you never doubted for one minute you were loved. She was a pillar of strength to me I will never forget and never be the same without.
While we've made great strides in the past year, the fact remains that too many women are unable to access life-saving cancer screenings, and we continue to lose too many of our loved ones to this disease.
It is imperative that those we send to Congress express their commitment for discovering the cures for breast cancer and that candidates commit themselves to fighting for the rights of breast cancer patients and survivors everywhere.
