This past weekend, I emceed the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Los Angeles Event and Kickoff which was held at the Gene Autry Museum. I've attended their kickoff event for the past several years and to be an emcee this year, was a a huge honor. It was a little more casual, this time around, since it was held outdoors at the museum, and the theme was cowboy/western...fitting for the venue - and of course, to wear pink.
As always, it was a morning filled with honoring inspiring women who have battled, been diagnosed, or are fighting breast cancer To hear their amazing stories was bittersweet. Listening to their stories of survival was beautiful, touching, and heartwarming. But the fact that they had to fight this nasty disease made me so angry, at the same time. I hope that we will find a cure to fight breast cancer. This is exactly what part of the kickoff event was all about - to support the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk which is happening on October 21st. To be a team leader, start your own team or group, and to help raise money.
There is so much that the American Cancer Society is doing in terms of research, support and patient programs. But they can't do it without us. For more information, on the American Cancer Society, you can head to:
