Nancy Brinker released the following statement on the passing of Alexine Clement Jackson.

“The passing of Alexine Clement Jackson leaves a profound sense of loss, but also a legacy that will forever inspire and guide us. Alexine was not only a friend but also a true champion in the fight against breast cancer. Her dedication and unwavering commitment to this cause were inspiring, and her impact on the lives of countless individuals cannot be overstated. Through her leadership, advocacy, and tireless efforts, she brought attention to the urgent need for increased awareness, research, and support for breast cancer patients and their families. Beyond her extraordinary work in the realm of breast cancer, Alexine’s warmth, compassion, and generosity touched the hearts of everyone she encountered. She had an innate ability to make people feel heard and valued, and her genuine concern for the well-being of others was a guiding light that illuminated the path for so many. Let her legacy remind us to continue the work she started, to be advocates for change, and to show compassion to those who are fighting battles of their own. My thoughts and prayers are with Alexine’s family and loved ones. May they find solace in the knowledge that her legacy will forever shine brightly in the lives she touched.”
