Debra and Leon Black’s Story

Interviewed by: David Snow

May 8, 2013

When Debra Black was diagnosed with melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, her family was given a quick and harrowing education in the pervasiveness of the disease. In a candid joint interview with her husband, Apollo Global Management founder Leon Black, the two tell the story of the initial shock diagnosis, successful treatment and how the experience led them to fund the creation of the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) with the guidance of their good friend, financial and philanthropic pioneer Michael Milken.
