How one Woman became a Trailblazer for Cancer

 

Betsy’s guest is Judith L. Pearson, an award-winning author, and writer, who’s here to discuss her latest book, “CRUSADE TO HEAL AMERICA: The Remarkable Life of Mary Lasker.” In our conversation, Judy highlights the incredible story of Mary Lasker, a health activist and philanthropist, known for her passionate stance, “I am opposed to heart disease and cancer the way one is opposed to sin.”

They explore Mary’s role as a catalyst in bringing people together for fundraising, advocating for congressional bills, and advancing cancer research. Mary’s commitment was so unwavering that she sold her valuable art collection to fund cancer research, particularly for interferon therapy.

Beyond health advocacy, Mary also had a deep passion for making New York City more beautiful through flower planting. The enduring influence of Mary and Albert Lasker is still felt in the world of medical research, shaping how it is conducted and funded.

Betsy and Judith also discussed the Lasker Foundation, often referred to as “The American Nobel Peace Prize” for its significant contributions to medical research. Personally, Betsy found Mary Lasker’s story to be truly inspiring, emphasizing the need for more individuals like her in our society. 📌 Also, there is a free autograph bookplate offered on Judith’s website!

 Presenting an audio interview featuring Betsy Wurzel and Judith Pearson, delving into the remarkable life of Mary Lasker. Mary Lasker, an exceptional woman, was not only a health activist and philanthropist but also known for her unwavering dedication and passion.

    I liked it as much as you did. Even though the picture and writing are good, you’re looking forward to what comes next. If you defend this walk, it will be pretty much the same every time.
