Description:
 Nancy and Susan Goodman, sisters born in the mid-1940s to a businessman and his community-active wife in Peoria, Ill., both developed breast cancer, but Susan died from it at age 37 in 1980. On a deathbed promise to her sister, Nancy vowed to bring breast cancer out in the open, force people to "talk about it," and find funding for a cure. In 1982, Nancy began Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which has raised more than a billion dollars for breast-cancer research and spawned a worldwide pink-ribbon phenomenon. All are welcome to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
