Katie Couric, award-winning journalist and TV personality, graces the cover of the print publication. In an exclusive interview with Mediaplanet, she shares her personal experiences of cancer within her family and how she channeled her grief into positive advocacy efforts.
“When [my husband] Jay was diagnosed 18 years ago, the first-line treatment was the same drug that had been used since the 1950s,” she recalls. “Lives are being saved and people are living longer, with better quality of life, because of the discoveries that are being made in the lab and developed into new therapies for patients.”
Couric concludes by putting faith in the scientists making strides against this disease, stating: “When scientists tell me they predict we may eradicate or at least manage many cancers in my lifetime, I believe them.”
