Gallery Bookshop joins Cancer Resource Center of Mendocino County and the Mendocino Coast Jewish Community to celebrate the release of "So Much To Be Done: The Writings of Breast Cancer Activist Barbara Brenner". It is informative and inspiring. Speakers will include Suzanne Lampert, Margaret Holub, and Sara O'Donnell.
"What kind of cancer is it?" was the first question Barbara Brenner asked her doctor after hearing that the lump in her breast was malignant. His answer: "You don't need to know that." Wrong response. Brenner, who was already an activist, made knowing her business and spreading knowledge her mission.
