Like your friend, sister, daughter, coworker or neighbor, Deborah A. Cohen was going about her life as a young and healthy woman until she was unexpectedly struck with a diagnosis of breast cancer. A graduate of Harvard Business School and Smith College, she is a marketing director for the professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. In addition to her “day job,” she is active in several breast cancer advocacy efforts, including “Climb for the Cure,” a multi-million dollar mountain climbing fundraiser, and the Breast Cancer Coalition’s Leadership Education and Advocacy Development Program. Originally from Milwaukee, WI, she currently resides in Rowayton, CT and New York City.
