Not sure I've heard of the last one but I know all the others above her (well, not personally mind you!).

Robin Roberts is still undergoing treatments, isn't she?

I've always enjoyed Robin Roberts as a sportscaster. She's so talented that she can make the cross over to non-sports news, similar to Keith Olbermann.

WOW I actually knew about every one of them...All special women in their own right...and they have all spoken up about this cause (I believe) as anyone with a pulpit should...

I think you have to be 5 years out to technically be a 'survivor' but my sister seems to be doing well.

And my aunt is a survivor.
