I was at work when I heard this.
I was in a room with another person, but when we heard Elizabeth speak, we both stopped and listened. And we both felt a connection with her. Me as a person who takes care of people who have this disease, and the other person because she had her cancer come back too. We were both immensely proud of her for being there, letting the world know that people with cancer also lead productive lives.
As with any disease, more public awareness is the key to early detection and also the way to direct more research into it.
