On the Passing of Laura Ziskin


The following is a post from Lance Armstrong in response to the passing of Laura Ziskin- producer and co-founder of Stand Up to Cancer.

The cancer community has lost one of its greatest leaders with the passing of Laura Ziskin. Laura united us in a way no one else could have and she was taken from us far too soon. Laura worked for a future where cancer no longer exists, where our loved ones are no longer taken from us by this disease. She did so in her typical way, with relentless determination and energy, and her efforts brought new life to our cause. We must fight that fight more fiercely now, for Laura and for all those we’ve lost. Laura was a good friend and partner to me. I’ll miss her very much, as will the whole LIVESTRONG family. Our thoughts are with Laura’s loved ones and friends.
