Promise Me excerpt in Parade Magazine: Meet Suzy and Nan, the real women behind Susan G. Komen for the Cure

In the Sunday paper today, Parade Magazine is featuring an excerpt from Promise Me: How a Sister's Love Launched the Global Movement to End Breast Cancer, the forthcoming memoir by Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure (with a little help from her Memoir Guru):
Stretched out on her chaise, my sister wore a cover-up that left her bare legs in the sunshine. Her limbs were so thin and knobby, she looked like a girl playing dress-up. I had to smile, thinking of the two of us in the backyard when we were kids, dancing in our coconut bras and hula skirts, pretending our ponies were stallions, playing patty-cake with our dolls.

Tears stung my eyes behind my sunglasses. Suzy’s role as a mainstay in my life had begun with the sound of her voice before I was born. She’d been with me for every major moment since. The dizzying speed with which our time together was coming to an end left me breathless.

My own sister called me from Fort Worth and read this to me from her copy of Parade. It's such a compelling story. The book is a definite must-read!

The publisher is doing a wonderful job with this book. And hail to the sisterhood Nancy and Joni. We will see much good come out of this.
