Laurie Becklund: Treat me like a statistic and save my life (16:09)

Former writer for the L.A. Times Laurie Becklund, Senior Fellow, USC Annenberg, presents at Stanford Medicine X at Stanford University on Sunday, September 7, 2014. She died at age 66 from metastatic breast cancer (the spread of cancer to different parts of the body, most often the bones, liver, lungs or brain). Becklund’s cancer went to all four sites. “The system we live in as metastatic breast cancer patients,” Becklund retorts, “is simply not designed to deal with the cycle we are living and dying in.”
