Marilyn Russell's Remarkable Women: Jenny D'Amato, Komen Champion of Breast Cancer, and Vickie Patton, General Counsel for the Environmental Defense Fund

April 14, 2019

This April we are featuring Komen’s Champions of Breast Cancer every Sunday. This week’s Champion is Jenny D'Amato. When Jenny was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2017, she did not have insurance. Her doctor gave her a pamphlet of the subsidized program she was receiving for treatment, and she saw it was sponsored by Susan G. Komen. Jenny shares her story with Marilyn and why she chooses to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day. The 3 Day is October 18-20th in Philadelphia. For more info and to register visit The3Day.org.  

Leading up to Earth Day on Monday, April 22nd, we wanted to feature a remarkable woman named Vickie Patton, General Counsel for the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Vickie shares the details on what Pennsylvania Governor Wolf and the EDF are doing to reduce carbon emissions in Pennsylvania. EDF has been active in Pennsylvania for many years and is deeply involved in developing state-based solutions that tackle climate and air emission reductions.
