Hearing that long-time Journalist Gwen Ifill passed away on Monday, November 14, 2016 from a type of Uterine (endometrial) Cancer saddened many, especially BlackWomenStandUp.com’s (BWSU) Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton, who in 2013 lost her mother to the same type of cancer. That prompted an annual cancer awareness initiative “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay” Day (read more about that “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” April 10th, 2016). Today we pay homage to Gwen Ifill, a woman who made such an impact on the world through her work, and we honor this Queen by adding her to our Cancer Memorial Wall, which honors Black Women and all Women of Color who have transitioned on from either one of the five types of gynecological cancers or breast cancer.
