Faith Fancher (1950 - October 19, 2003) was a television journalist at KTVU (Oakland, California) since 1983, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Ms. Fancher was the first African American woman television reporter in Knoxville. She later worked for National Public Radio and CNN.
After being diagnosed with cancer, in an effort to increase awareness, she allowed KTVU to report on her efforts to fight the disease. She also founded an organization called Friends of Faith to raise money for breast cancer research and education, before finally succumbing to the disease.
