For the past 28 years, A Conversation With a Living Legend has held the spotlight on former heads of state, professional athletes, prominent journalists, popular entertainers, and more. The intimate onstage chat, aimed at not only entertaining guests, but also increasing awareness and raising funds for MD Anderson, was conceived by Lyda Hill. Replicated across the nation, the event model has raised more than $33 million for cancer treatment, prevention and education programs at MD Anderson.
