Nancy Brinker's promise to her sister started a global movement to raise awareness and education people about breast cancer. And she's inspiring women all across the world and here in Siouxland to fight for a cure.
It's hard to find a family who hasn't been touched by breast cancer. No one knows that better than Nancy Brinker, who founded Susan G. Komen for the Cure in honor of her only sister, who she lost to the disease nearly 30 years ago.
And some Siouxland women attended a special brunch Friday, to honor a lost loved one, as well.
"I have five sisters and four of us are breast cancer survivors and one of my sister's daughters passed away of breast cancer," says Lisa Pottebaum from Jefferson, SD.
Stephanie Myres just joined the Komen team as director for next year's Race for the Cure. She, too, is volunteering with a loved one in mind.
"We lost my sister in June of triple negative breast cancer so I have a personal link to it – Teresa's Troops was her team that we did every year for the Race and so I just want to carry that on in her memory," says Myres.
And it's women like these who Nancy Brinker credits with the success of her vision.
"The work going on in Sioux City is so wonderful, because the volunteer participation is so heavy, so intense here," she said.
"She is inspiring – she pulls you into her own movement and what she's doing and as a fighter and survivor – I absolutely want to get my voice out there [to help] others," said Patti Strong, a Sioux City native.
Because, as Nancy knows, as far as we've come, there's still a lot of work to do.
