You night is a runway event hosted by my real life sister Lisa.
It is a spectacular, fun, laughter filled runway show that gets beautiful women together who are cancer overcomers and life thrivers to walk the catwalk as models.
These exceptional women are literally flooded with love and gifts as their friends and family show their support by attending and cheering them on.
This will probably be a sold out event so book your tickets early.
As a little sister would — I like to follow my sister either in person or in this case online. My real life sister has been up to her amazing self again by having just completed a successful runway fashion show in order to increase breast cancer awareness.
Today, I’m sharing a letter that my sister Lisa received from one of the participants.
Well, I just enjoyed the experience of a life time!

I was invited along with 23 other ladies who have overcome breast cancer to participate in the first annual fundraiser style show for the Mary Byrd Perkins Cancer Center in Covington, Louisiana.
Yes. It was the first annual show and the organizers were flying without an airplane.
The plan was for us to be models and the plans were big. They didn’t plan for us just to walk down the runway like the amateurs we were. Oh no!
We began with an Orientation on September 14th and my immediate thought was Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?
There were many steps to accomplish and appointments to set. Boutiques volunteered to do our hair and makeup. They sponsored us by providing the clothing, applying the eyelashes, everything. We were gifted with bras and decorative bra straps from Lisa.
What most impressed me was the opportunity to meet every Wednesday night with Celeste of Creating U. Celeste went above and beyond the call of duty in teaching us how to carry ourselves, walk a runway and pose for pictures. The two hours she initially agreed to almost always stretched to three.
On September 24, Celeste had the opportunity to observe her raw material and I’m sure she wondered how she was going to accomplish this feat. Jimmy asked me what the ladies were like and I said, Well, go into Walmart on a busy Saturday and get on their speaker. Request that any ladies who have overcome breast cancer come to the front of the store and choose the first 23.
That is what we are like.
We are all sizes, all ages. We stand from 5 foot to over 6 foot tall. Some have little self confidence and others seem extra confident.
The age range is from 23 to 73. Many are still getting chemo and others are putting off surgery until after our show. Melanie, our youngest, didn’t have enough length on her hair and she chose to wear a beautiful long wig.
This is what made our event so amazing. It was everyday life, every day real people, not a group of model like ladies.
