Lyn Anderson is a longtime friend of Marg’s and a cancer survivor.
“It’s amazing how much just Marg’s presence can bring attention to issues. I mean, that is a wonderful thing about being a celebrity. People are going to show up, and the word’s going to get out. And she, and Alan too, completely give of themselves.” (commenting on Marg and Alan’s Celebrity Weekend, the charity event that the couple did to raise money for cancer research).
“People get uncomfortable talking about it. And you don’t want to make them uncomfortable. Marg was not uncomfortable. She would just be there with me.” (speaking of her cancer and Marg’s reaction to it) — both quotes were taken from Lifetime’s Intimate Portrait of Marg Helgenberger.
