Abstract

I met Beatriz Figueroa in cyberspace. We started having e-discussions after I learned about her provocative new awareness campaign, “Life is not the same after breast cancer.” She leads a national e-campaign calling for a law to protect the economic rights of cancer patients. I was humbled and inspired by her work because she pushes her audience to realize the disabling and economic impacts of breast cancer, issues barely addressed in public policy or social support systems. When Beatriz attended a conference I co-organized in Barcelona, Spain in April 2015, the Symposium on Breast Cancer and Feminism, it was an exceptional opportunity to meet her.
