This Wednesday and Thursday a total of 25 women who have been affected by breast cancer will be able to tell their story. But they won’t be writing it or speaking it for that matter. Each woman will strike a pose for the 2010 White House | Black Market October Breast Cancer Awareness Catalog. Each pose, each smile, and each woman will be a reflection of the countless women who have come to face with breast cancer.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, White House | Black Market reached out to LBBC, taking advantage of the partnership that the two have with each other. White House | Black Market is a generous corporate sponsor of LBBC and we are proud to have been able to provide them with 25 inspirational women who will be a reflection of our organization. Over 100 women applied for this opportunity which included a chance to receive an expense paid trip to New York City, a professional fashion shoot complete with hair, make-up, wardrobe, and a White House | Black Market gift card!
This was one of the most competitive opportunities that LBBC has extended to our constituents and we are truly grateful and touched by the outpour of support and most of all, the impact of all of your stories. Although each story was different, each diagnosis may have been at a different stage, and the recovery from treatment was different from one submission to the next, you all are LIVING BEYOND BREAST CANCER and HAPPILY, might I add!
Don’t forget to check out The Early Show on CBS on Thursday, July 1. The weather anchor, Dave Price, will lead a few of the contestants in a talk-back segment while they share their stories to the audience. This will be a live recording! Check your local listings for show times in your area.
