A Tribute to Chris Brunswick

We are saddened that Chris Brunswick, vice president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition and a member of its Board of Directors, passed away on February 25 after a long, courageous battle with breast and cervical cancer. She was 60 years old.

A longtime breast cancer advocate, Chris was part of the National Breast Cancer Coalition since its inception in 1991. She was a leader at every level, and among her many other volunteer efforts for NBCC, she testified before Congress and regulatory agencies, often appeared on television and in print media on behalf of NBCC, represented the coalition on various national committees and panels, and spoke around the world to advocates and researchers. She served on the NBCC Executive Committee and was one of the founders and advocates for NBCC’s international work, participating in various international conferences, including the 4th United Nation’s World Conference on Women in Beijing, China in 1995. Chris acted as a mentor for new NBCC board members and for participants in our Emerging Leaders network.

Chris was smart; she had grace, strength, a keen sense of humor and incredible “street sense.” She was a treasured friend to many. She knew how to get things done. And how to have fun.

Born in Iron River, Michigan, Chris was a graduate of Michigan State University where she earned a degree in economics.

She is survived by her son Daniel Kemp of New York City.

Her family has asked that donations be made to The Chris Brunswick Fund at National Breast Cancer Coalition, 1101 17th Street, NW, Suite 1300, Washington, DC, 20036.

The Vance Wall Foundation has generously pledged to match all donations to The Chris Brunswick Fund.
