The courage and immediacy that Laura infused into everything she did continues to live on in all of us at Stand Up to Cancer. Because Laura Ziskin asked the question "why?" and acted on it, cancer research today is being done differently, all for the benefit of patients.
Much has been written about Laura Ziskin's tragic passing, and every title she has been given describes her heroic nature: Producer, Writer, Charity Co-Founder, Wife and Mother. To that list I'd like to add "Yogini."
Laura Ziskin never gave up. She always knew there was still so much good work left to do. For me, that positive, action-oriented spirit is Laura's most inspiring and enduring legacy. For our own journeys we should all ask ourselves, "What would Laura do?"
