My Breast Cancer Story

Apr 26, 2012 | 0 comments

Recently, I was a model in a fashion show with five other women. We’re all breast cancer survivors. We got to wear swanky clothes from Chico’s, get makeup done by Mary Kay Cosmetics, and take a spin on the catwalk.

After showing off two outfits, each model got to tell her individual experience with breast cancer and survival. Our group ranged from one year done with treatment to a number of years in the past, with a wide range of different treatments.

The fashion show was one of the educational sessions associated with the Nancy Floyd Haworth Foundation annual Celebration of Hope event. The seminar was called “Look Good and Feel Great: Take a Look at Me Now!”

It was such an inspiration to hear each woman’s story. Here’s a YouTube video of my talk in the second fashion show. The first show, with all the talks and the fashion show, is coming soon!
