    In tragic irony she died of cancer herself after spending a lifetime searching for a cure for it.
    In a world where three movies have been made about the Long Island Lolita/Amy Fisher, Dr. Roberts' life and accomplishments passed without notice by the newsmakers.
    Astonishingly she has never received a major award for her work.
    She dedicated her professional life to finding a cure for cancer.
    A major part of her research was spent studying TGF-B, a protein that she discovered could help heal wounds and fractures and block or stimulate cancer.
    When a cure for cancer is found, her research will be a major part of the cure.
    She died tragically young at age 64.
    She kept a blog for the last months of her life detailing her fight for life and demonstrating what true courage is.
