Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness
After her diagnosis, Miller organized Pre-surgical Partners, a telephone network of local breast cancer survivors who served as special friends to new breast cancer patients throughout their treatment and recovery. She was also instrumental in convincing the Colorado legislature to require health care organizations to provide mammograms for women over 40. She also influenced federal funding for breast cancer research. Miller has brought support organizations together to stem the tide of ignorance about breast cancer and gather support for those who need it most. She has received many honors for her life’s work, including the Bea Romer Women’s Health Leadership Award, the Jacque Mattson Volunteer Award, the Sabin Award from the Arthritis Foundation, and the Savvy Award for Outstanding Volunteerism.
