Bernadette Z. Simpson's Story:
I am a 2 time breast cancer survivor that was first diagnosed at the age of 42. At the time, I was unemployed and had no health insurance. When you are in that situation, you don’t know where to turn when you find something suspicious on your body. Because I was uninsured, I received a grant from Susan G. Komen Charlotte with my first diagnosis that paid for my mammogram and my biopsy. Thankfully, I was able to get these treatments which determined that I did in fact have breast cancer. That saved my life. I was again diagnosed this year at the age of 49. Fortunately, I had health insurance this time.

Fundraising for the Race for the Cure is important to me because I want to give back to others. Someone raised funds that ultimately helped me get the treatments I needed, so I try to give back by doing the same thing. Early detection is key. In fact, my second diagnosis was made after I went for my yearly routine mammogram. If people have access to these free tests, it can save lives.

Breast Cancer Warrior Kathleen Mancuso says: "The best advice I can give any woman is to listen to your body and go on your intuitions. That's what saved my life"
Photog/Stylist Emily says the cause is very personal for her: "Supporting breast cancer research (and any cancer research) is vital, and we shouldn't forget that it's about more than just wearing pink - it's about saving people's lives."
