Top Television Agent Brings Expertise and Passion for a Future Without Breast Cancer. Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research today announced that Sonya Rosenfeld, Co-Head of the Television department at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), has joined the breast cancer research foundation’s board of directors. “Sonya possesses tremendous knowledge in developing partnerships, which is perfectly aligned with our mission to mobilize the public to be active participants in finding the cause and prevention of breast cancer,” said Meribeth Brand, board chair of Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. “The board’s decision was unanimous and we’re delighted to welcome Sonya to the team.” A veteran of CAA, Rosenfeld is the agency’s most senior female television agent, representing many of the industry’s top writers, producers, directors, and actors. Since losing her mother to breast cancer 20 years ago, Rosenfeld has applied her talents to raise awareness and support for breast cancer research. In 2011, she shepherded a project with Lifetime to explore the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives. The groundbreaking original movie “Five” was directed by Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Independent Spirit Award-winner Patty Jenkins, and Penelope Spheeris. Rosenfeld has been an active supporter of Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research since 2012, participating in various events including the foundation’s signature event, Walk With Love, where her Team CAA took the Top Team award in 2013. Team CAA participated once again at Walk With Love 2014 on May 18 in Pacific Palisades, with 37 team members raising $25,043 to support the foundation’s research programs. “I wholeheartedly support Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research in its efforts to understand the cause of breast cancer, and am optimistic that their collaborations with many of the world’s top researchers will ultimately lead to its eradication,” said Rosenfeld. Welcome, Sonya!
