Dr. Susan Love
For decades, Dr. Susan Love has been a leader in the fight against breast cancer. As a surgeon, researcher, and advocate, Dr. Love added patient to her resume when she was diagnosed with leukemia last year. Today, Dr. Love discusses her experience as a patient and impact on her quality of life as a result of the side effects of treatment. Dr. Love says that experience moved her to begin looking at the causes of breast cancer in a move to thwart the disease before surgery and chemotherapy become the only viable options. Plus, Dr. Love explains how her organization, The Army of Women, is giving all women, with or without breast cancer, the opportunity to partner with researchers and take breast cancer beyond a cure.

With just a few simple cuts and a 2x4, Mark shows how you can easily create these rustic shelves.
