Stephanie Graff: Sheila Johnson is a force—I hope to carry her energy and spirit in all that I do

Stephanie Graff shared a post by Erika Hamilton on X and added:

Sheila Johnson is a force—I hope to carry her energy and spirit in all that I do.

I have been lucky to share with Shelia a stage, a message, a long hug, a hard laugh, some adventures, and a hotel room (after some ill-fated reservations…). May she rest in power. Love to her family.”

Quoting Erika Hamilton’s post:

Sheila Johnson was amazing – such a fierce advocate for women of color, clinical trial participation, and everyone having the knowledge to make informed healthcare decisions.

We in the breast cancer community will miss her dearly.”
