Anne Golden - United Way of Greater Toronto

Betty's presentation was well-rounded--it included sharing, learning, interaction, laughing, crying, and hoping. What more could you ask for in a presentation about Breast Cancer and Survivorship? It was perfect for our opening General Session.

Dorothy D. Green - The American Cancer Society, Florida

You were able to communicate to health care providers what we can do better to understand & support women & their families when a tragic health problem has been diagnosed. You helped us to know that although tragedy has hit we must keep a sense of humor.

Martha A. Hang - Brigham and Women's Hospital

The crowd of 600 loved her. She was funny, poignant and refreshing all at the same time. This group ran the gamut from 18-80 years old, and Betty was hitting all their hot buttons. It was amazing that she could relate to such a spectrum.
