She moved into the White House when I was only 12 and I don't remember much about her from that time period. The one thing I do remember is that the only reason that I found out that my great grandmother had had breast cancer in 1971 is because Betty told the nation in 1974 that she had had a mastectomy. The woman did more for the normalization of cancer than anybody else. I remember well when cancer was called "The Big C" and only spoken about in whispered tones. Rest in Peace Betty, we all owe you a debt of gratitude for your bravery.
