      I'm glad she finally accepted scientific evidence and she made good points about so much time being wasted catering to the fears of women who never get breast cancer.  

      She still has a way to go in pushing the boundaries and advocating for better, faster research though.  She did make one small mention about research to understand and stop cancer metastasis.  There needs to be a much bigger push in that direction.  

      It's a shame that it took the revelation of Komen's dishonesty to finally wake up so many breast cancer survivors. We could have used them in the battle years ago, but its better to have them understand some of the issues now.  It will be encouraging to see more attention focused on women who have breast cancer and less on those afraid of getting it and who likely never will.
