Tennis legend Martina Navratilova speaks at the Mautner Project for Lesbian Health’s Gala awards dinner, where she received the Chair’s Award for her advocacy on lesbian health issues. Navratilova shared the story of her diagnosis with and treatment for breast cancer, as well as the health scare she had during her attempted climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro. “Sometimes, even I have limits,” she said, adding that her goal is “squeezing every ounce of vitality and joy out of this life, I don’t know any other way to live.”
