It isn't just about 1 month out of the year... it's about every day, for every woman,
for every fighter, survivor, and family or friend of a breast cancer warrior.
I'm am humbled each and every time I meet one of these woman and hear their
unique story of strength, courage and bravery!
Here are 2 of the women that will be featured in the 2013 calendar.
She's bold. She's bald. She's beautiful. Her smile is contagious.
She's got a lot of spunk, and
she's not letting cancer hold her down!
I'm so proud to be a part of a Breast Cancer Awareness project at
Saint Luke's East Hospital in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
I take photos of some amazing woman. These pictures are put into a fundraising calendar.
Each month features a local woman, tells her personal story, and has some shocking facts
about the deadly disease. The calendar raises money for the Women's Center located at the hospital.
We are hoping to create a place where woman can get accessories, such as wigs and scarves,
get support and learn how to take good care of themselves while fighting for their beautiful lives.
She's rural. She's an activist. Her teenage daugter is too. She's a biker.
She's a beloved teacher, wife and mother of two.
Her students raised money and bought her a wig when she was going through chemo.
They understood when she was too hot to wear it during the warm months of summer.
Thanks to these lovely ladies for being brave enough to tell your story
and share you fight!
I'm so proud of you.
