This is the story how one woman’s deathbed promise led to the founding of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an international movement to find a cure for breast cancer. Brinker tells of growing up with her older sister, who forges ahead in life until she loses her battle with breast cancer in the 1970s, a time when the disease was only whispered about and was a virtual death sentence. Coleen Marlo puts the enthusiasm and sincerity of the author front and center in the narration. She holds strong emotions in check and reflects the determination that is the major factor in the success of the Komen foundation. The story is wrapped in a tone of civility and graciousness that suggests an author who takes pride in being a Southern lady. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
