Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G. Komen For The Cure, tells her inspirational story in this new memoir, “Promise Me.”
Born Nancy Goodman in Peoria, Ill., Brinker shares tales of her early family life and her relationship with her older, popular sister, Suzy. She writes about the difficult path from Suzy’s diagnosis to her death; followed by Brinker’s determination to end the silence surrounding breast cancer and raise money for research.
The result has been the global movement that has made a difference in the lives of many families and is a tribute to a sister’s love.
