In 1968, a teenage girl in a chartreuse dress delivered a breath-taking free-skating program that captured the only winter Olympics gold medal for the United States. Peggy Fleming continued to earn the highest marks in her skating career, but she deserved even higher marks for her grace under pressure off the ice. Possessing that rare ability to learn and grow from all of life's experiences--even the worst setbacks--without feeling sorry for herself, Peggy Fleming coped with the death of the entire U.S. Figure Skating Team (including her coach) at only twelve years of age. Her biggest personal challenge was a bout with breast cancer. Her solid advice is for all women, everywhere. "My heart goes out to anyone who has to go through it, it's frightening, and it's tough.
