So this blog is extra special to me. On February 11th, I went to a show that was absolutely empowering for me and for so many others who have been touched by breast cancer. Project Cancerland was filled with women who were affected by breast cancer in one way or another. They had Survivors, Metavivors and two Mutantvivors who walked in the show. The show benefited an organization called METavivor. It is an incredible organization that raises money for Metastatic Breast Cancer. 1 out of 8 women will develop breast cancer. 1 out of 3 of those women will develop metastatic breast cancer regardless of screening or early detection. This is absolutely unacceptable!!! Why does the only breast cancer that kills, get’s the least amount of funds for research? 41,400 people will die from Metastatic Breast Cancer. That’s 310 more women and 20 more men compared to 2017. 100% of the proceeds go to research, 100%!!!!. They do not spend frivolous money for advertising. All the people who are involved are all volunteers.
I have met some incredible women at the show. Dana Donofree you did an absolutely amazing job with the show. You fucking rocked it out of the ball park. I also met some of the ladies in my support group Mutant Strong! as well as other breasties who were just as amazing. the atmosphere in the room was filled with so much love and so much of a warrior spirit that it’s just indescribable.
The after party was hosted in a beautiful loft. Dana looked amazing in her white dress, but after all she is the boss lady and a designer. Her dedication to the cause is absolutely contagious. She herself is a breast cancer survivor. She created her collection because she, like many of us, left the dressing room crying because no bra was comfortable or they look like old granny bras.
It was an absolutely beautiful night. The weather warmed up and the rain let up. The New York sky was beautiful. The rooms were elegant and filled with art pieces to be sold at the silent auction. The party was amazing and the show was incredible, but after all the glitz and glamour wears off, reality kicks in. We still have a HUGE problem on our hands when it comes to Metastatic Breast Cancer. There is much that needs to be done in order to stop this ugly beast from killing so many of us and our loved ones. When donating money, just please make sure you know where it’s going and how much of it actually goes to research. Spread the word people.
