The statistics tell the tale: 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. 40,000 women in our country will die of breast cancer each year. Worldwide, someone dies of breast cancer every minute. When you take a step back, at some point in everyone’s life, they will be impacted by this disease. To add to the staggering statistics, 1 in 4 Texans are uninsured – the highest rate nation-wide.
U.S. Rep. LLoyd Doggett
Fifty years ago this November, President Lyndon B. Johnson stood in Texas State University’s Strahan Gym, now where Strahan Coliseum stands, for the formal signing of the Higher Education Act. This landmark law unlocked the door to college for decades of students otherwise unable to attend. The goal, LBJ said, was to ensure that the “path of knowledge is open to all that have the determination to walk it.”
