Co-author Joni Rodgers
As a 15-year cancer survivor, bestselling author Joni Rodgers brought unique perspective and great passion to the Promise Me project.
"I've learned so much and been so inspired," says Rodgers. "The research was fascinating. I was stunned to discover that the treatment I received for lymphoma was developed through research funded in part by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I threw my arms around Nan and said 'Thank you for helping me stay alive to see my kids grow up.' Nancy Brinker is amazing. I've never known anyone with a greater sense of purpose and integrity. I hope readers will embrace her and fall in love with Suzy. And I can't wait for the lively book club discussions!"
Bald in the Land of Big Hair, Joni's hilarious and uplifting memoir of her own cancer experience was published around the world and is still in print after more than a decade.
