Betty Ford calls herself an ordinary woman who just happened to be thrust on stage at an extraordinary time. But she was much more than that. At a time when the country desperately needed honesty, she spoke frankly - even when it got her into trouble. When she faced her own breast cancer, and later, drug dependency and alcoholism, her outspoken strength made her one of the most admired women in the world. Two decades after leaving the White House she is as active as ever, having founded her mission: The Betty Ford Center. Betty Ford has led several lives: professional dancer, wife and mother, First Lady, activist. Yet she has always been exactly herself.
