According to the National Cancer Institute, "getting a high-quality screening mammogram and having a clinical breast exam on a regular basis are the most effective ways to detect breast cancer early." Yet, for thousands of women without health insurance, those preventive measures are unreachable. Dr. Sandy Goldberg began a mission to change that, providing a "silver lining" for fellow Chicagoans.
Passionate about following her own advice as the on-air Health and Nutrition Contributor on Chicago's NBC-5, Dr. Sandy Goldberg was stunned when she heard the words, "You have breast cancer and you need to have surgery immediately." After the initial shock-wave subsided, Dr. Goldberg channeled her emotions in the path she's confidently walked for years -- she shared her story on camera. Her journey captured viewers' attention, put a spotlight on breast cancer, and resulted in an Emmy Award. The series entitled One Woman's Story became an inspiration to thousands and served as a catalyst beyond her cancer diagnosis.
In 2002, A Silver Lining Foundation was born. Dr. Goldberg's passion to make a difference in others' lives has been magnified through the foundation's mission of providing resources, quality of life services, and cost-free screening mammograms to underinsured individuals. It appears that life was scripting her capacity as founder and chairperson for years, with such honors as a humanitarian award, recognition for "heroes in healthcare," and most recently, "Chicagoan of the Year 2013." Her expanded vision for the foundation, as well as the driving force of compassion will be our spirited focus with Dr. Goldberg in this episode.
