On World Cancer Day, Zahara Heckscher, a 51-year old mother and author from Washington, DC, who has been in treatment for advanced breast cancer for seven years, and Hannah Lyon, a 29-year old from California who is in treatment for advanced cervical cancer, linked arms and refused to leave the lobby of the office building that houses PhRMA, the trade association that has pushed for extreme monopolies in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, while dozens of supporters chanted outside, until they were arrested.
