As often as it is important for us to get our voices out there, it is also helpful to the community as a whole for high-profile individuals like Sandra Lee, New York Governor Cuomo’s long time girlfriend.
High-profile cases help us to get the information out there. It takes courage to tell the world about your diagnosis. It takes a lot of courage as well to get the news in public.
