Barbara Brenner has lost her voice to ALS, but the disease hasn’t silenced her.

She’s the same outspoken activist she was nearly two decades ago when, as executive director of the San Francisco grassroots advocacy group Breast Cancer Action, she battled to change the conversation around breast cancer from detection and treatment to cause and prevention.

Today, the two-time breast cancer survivor has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a fatal neurological disease commonly known – unfortunately, Brenner says – as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
