“Map of Destiny – Pinpointing A Cancer Epidemic on the Kitchen Table”

by Joan Swirsky


“Map of Destiny” is a detailed account of Lorraine Pace’s creation of the West Islip breast cancer mapping project — the first such community-based project in the world. Lorraine’s attempt to seek a correlation between environmental factors and clusters of the disease, told against the backdrop of her arduous and courageous battle against breast cancer, is the story of one woman’s refusal to accept the status quo and her determination to keep breast cancer at the top of the public’s health agenda. Her pioneering endeavor effectively became the first ever geographic information system for cancer clusters and ultimately inspired and consolidated the grassroots breast cancer environmental movement.

The retail cost of the book is $15.00 plus shipping and handling, resulting in a $5 contribution directly to Breast Cancer Help; however, donations exceeding this minimum for the purchase of “Map of Destiny” will greater support our programs and efforts in the fight against breast cancer.
