A10’s Susan McCormick Teams Up with WRAL and Komen on Elizabeth Edwards

A10’s Executive VP, Clinical Research & breast cancer survivor, Susan McCormick interviews with WRAL

A10’s Executive Vice President of Clinical Research and 20-year breast cancer survivor, Susan McCormick was selected by Triangle’s Susan G. Komen to interview with WRAL-TV reporter Amanda Lamb, offering her personal reaction to the passing of Elizabeth Edwards, an inspirational leader to those affected by breast cancer.

Courtesy of WRAL, originally posted on http://bit.ly/eVxIs9, Susan was inspired to contribute to the write-up: “Edwards an Inspiration to those with breast cancer” and participate in an associated video displayed on the WRAL 6:00pm news Thursday, December 9, 2010.  A10 is so very proud of Susan for her continual dedication to supporting lifesaving breast cancer awareness and research.

An admirer of Edwards, Susan says of Edwards’ death, “It does become emotional because, we know, as a survivor, it kind of smacks you in the face each time.  (Elizabeth Edwards was) just another mighty warrior that had modeled the way and left her imprint and provided a great inspiration to all the other survivors out there.”

Susan further noted, “I collaborate with Komen because I believe it is part of my ‘survival purpose’.  When I see and hear of all of the wonderful, wonderful women who lose their battles with breast cancer, I always ask myself, ‘Why have I been spared?’  The answer is simple – because I am still needed to serve my survival purpose – to continue to contribute to the creation of A World Without Breast Cancer.”

A10 continues to offer our condolences to the Edwards’ family.  What a strong example of resilience and courage.  May she rest in peace.
