breast cancer claims another

Every time breast cancer takes another member of our MBC family, I can barely find words to express how devastating it feels. Laura Ziskin, co-founder of Stand Up To Cancer died of breast cancer Sunday evening in Santa Monica. You may know her more for her role as producer of the Spider-Man franchise and Pretty Woman with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. She was a strong voice and talent in Hollywood who used her prominence to try to help others by co-founding Stand Up To Cancer.

At just 61 her original diagnosis was only seven years ago in 2004.

My condolences to her family and friends.
