Maggie Daley "Gratitude makes everyday a gift"Steven T Rosen, MD, Director of the Lurie Cancer Center, recalls with admiration, "Maggie faced her heroic battle with breast cancer with grace and dignity. She is an inspiration for all of humanity."
"Maggie proved that faith and strength of character can rise above adversity," says Northwestern University trustee and philanthropist, Ann Lurie. "Her tenacious battle with cancer on the one hand and her determination to continue with her public and private life on the other, have provided inspiration to many. Losing a beloved spouse or parent to this aggressive and often relentless disease leaves a void that can never be filled. I wish Rich and the family the strength to embrace her spirit for support and to carry on in her memory. We are all thankful to have had her presence in our lives."
The Maggie Daley Center for Women's Cancer Care is the region's largest facility dedicated exclusively to women's cancer. It offers an integrative and holistic approach to providing care to patients and their families. Through the Lurie Cancer Center, the Maggie Daley Center offers access to more than 100 clinical trials looking at promising new ways of delivering cancer therapy and advanced treatment options. Mrs. Daley generously supported the Lurie Cancer Center and felt a responsibility to inspire others dealing with breast cancer to realize that there are many treatment options available, and that they can survive with metastatic disease.
