Award-winning actress Jill Eikenberry is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Ann Kelsey on NBC's long-running hit series L.A. Law. In addition to appearing in numerous television movies and feature films, Eikenberry has earned four Emmy nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and a Golden Globe Award.

After adding breast cancer survivor to her extensive resume, Eikenberry co-produced a one-hour documentary for NBC entitled Destined to Live, which focused on the emotional aspects of breast cancer, from diagnosis to recovery. She battled the disease in 1986 and became compelled to convey the importance of informing other women that they were not alone in their fight and could recover to lead full, normal lives. Eikenberry is dedicated to telling her powerful story with humor and hope, always stressing breast cancer education, early detection research, and treatment. Destined to Live was honored with a Humanitas Award.
