 Promise me : how a sister’s love launched the global movement to end breast cancer
 Part memoir, part non-fiction battle against breast cancer, this book tells how the author lost her beloved older sister, Suzy, to breast cancer at the age of 37. In one of her final conversations with her sister, she vowed to do everything she could to fight breast cancer and raise money in her sister’s name. Thus, the Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation was born.  Thirty years after the death of her sister, the Susan G. Komen For the Cure is one of the most influential and respected health charities in the world, raising over 1.5 billion dollars towards education, research, and community programs.  This was a fascinating read on how literally one person CAN make a huge difference when they put their mind to something.
