DailySlam.com recently conducted an interview with Sandra Toffoloni, the sister of the late Nancy "Woman" Benoit. Toffoloni has founded an organization dedicated to researching the effects of steroid abuse on the brain and the body called "The Nancy and Daniel Benoit Foundation," which is located at NBDFoundation.Org.
