Alexine Clement Jackson, SGK Board Chair

Breast cancer isn’t an island. The overarching dynamics of the breast cancer movement have created a rising tide.

“For many women with low resources,” says SGK board chair Alexine Clement Jackson, “breast cancer screening is the only doorway into a health care system from which they’ve previously been excluded. Prostate cancer screening based on the breast cancer model does the same thing for men. Our focus is breast cancer. We have to do what we do. But the greater goal is to solve the disparities that plague health care access in general.”

When Alexine Clement Jackson and I discuss where we’d like this organization to be in twenty-five years, Alexine states unequivocally: “Out of business. Because the cure for breast cancer has been found and it’s a chronic, treatable disease for all women, everywhere in the world."

Read the story of how Alexine and so many others are making this vision a reality in Promise Me.
