Maggie Daley only wanted to talk about her pet project, After School Matters, Thursday at Gallery 37.
"I'm also proud of all the teens in the entire program who bring their talent, their passion and their joy," Daley told the crowd of program -- and personal -- supporters.
Daley was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2002. She underwent surgery to remove a tumor in the summer of 2006.
"Maggie has been a fighter," an emotional mayor at the time. "Her commitment is to be able to defeat this."
