The devastation of Cancer has plagued my personal life for two decades. It all started when my mother broke the news to me when I was eleven years old that she was diagnosed with a terminal form that was spreading rapidly through her body. The “C” reared its ugly yet consistent head again throughout my twenties with personal bouts of the ovarian version and most recently with another terrifying occurrence six months ago. Needless to say, I am very aware that regardless of the status of my remission, this will be a lifelong battle for me. Cancer shouldn’t get it twisted though… this broad is the definition of sustainable and will always come out the victor.
Let me introduce you to Women Rock For the Cure.
This Nashville based non-profit organization was formed by four friends and is committed to connecting and supporting young women facing breast cancer. WRFTC works to build awareness and provide outreach programs through the power of the entertainment industry. All proceeds benefit the organization's outreach efforts, including the Young Survivors Retreat, which brings together young women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Compelling work, right? Consider attending the upcoming annual Pink Trash Ball to show support for this important cause while gaining an excuse to bust out your most splendid pink party dress. Special performances by Tiffany (yes, yes, that Tiffany!) and supporting musical acts will share the Mercy Lounge stage with Betsey Johnson Nashville for their finale fashion show. Tickets range from $25-50 and you may purchase tickets here.
For all of you loyal readers, here is your opportunity to win an exclusive Stella Shops Save The TaTa's prize package that includes two tickets to the Pink Trash Ball and a Buddie Bra.
A girl has to protect her assets with some style!
This delightful sports bra is designed with two pockets directly above the curve of a woman’s breast and is specifically designed to hold your most important needs such as your cell phone, personal or gym ID, key, money/debit card, nutritional packs, inhaler, MP3, etc. The front, back and two pockets are double lined for comfort and to prevent your belongings from coming in contact with your skin. Everything you place in your pocket stays in your pocket. No ISSUES - No SWEAT. Your needs are endless and now your hands are free. I am sure that Carla is sighing with relief as I am breaking up with my not-so-chic fannypack for this new buddie.
