In 2009, Pamela and her sister, the late Louisa M.

In March of 2015, Pamela was featured alongside fellow ovarian cancer advocates in the NY Daily News’ cover story “We Are Jolie: How Everyday Women Cope with the Same Cancer Issue Facing Angie”, which prompted a conversation about the medical options available to women at high risk for contracting ovarian cancer.
