/ An Advocate Shares / Editorial List
As many of you know, this week we learned that a
true caregiving advocate, Joan Lunden, publicly
shared her recent breast cancer diagnosis. Our
thoughts and prayers are with Joan and her family as
they deal with the challenges they will face after

Joan a few times and am impressed with her humor,
kindness and dedicated family caregiver advocacy.
I believe that her announcement was another
example of Joan’s public advocacy as I’m sure that
doctors’ visits will be made by those who may have
been delaying their mammography appointments for a
We wish Joan and her family all the best.
