11th annual Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness, a locally organized day-long event designed to educate, empower and give hope to those affected by breast cancer.
Each year the South Florida community gathers to celebrate the lives of women battling breast cancer. Medical professionals will host morning seminars on survivor stress management, reconstructive surgery, preventive nutrition, and alternative treatments, as well as a discussion on the psychological after-effects of breast cancer. The guest speaker will be Dee Dee Ricks, founder of RICKS/ Consulting Group, Inc. and a breast cancer survivor.
A gourmet lunch will be served followed by an exciting fashion show. However, the models in this fashion show will not be typical runway models â€“ these models, both men and women, are survivors of breast cancer.
â€œOur goal is to have women recognize that beauty and life can continue after cancer,â€ said Ann Kinstler, chairperson. â€œWe want people to leave knowing that they can and will battle through it.â€
