dc.description.abstractJulie Thomas’s connection with breast cancer began in the late 1980s when her friend was diagnosed. That friend survived, but when she lost another friend to the disease in the early 1990′s, Julie decided to take action. She started by participating in Komen events and Avon walks but she wanted to do more. Recently, with the help of Johns Hopkins, she has given her own breast tissue for use in cancer research. ”If you connect with people, then you connect with them and their pain and in their suffering,” she says. “That’s what led me, certainly, to do something about this disease.”en_US
