Breast Cancer Awareness: Celebrating Life Foundation's Sister toSisterevent

was blessed once again with the opportunity to participate as a vendor at the Sister to Sister Annual Fitness Festival & 5k Race/Walk earlier this month. I supported in previous years through our company, The Lyons Group, but did not have an opportunity to attend. Last year, I started selling Avon and this event has been a great place to showcase my new biz as well as support the presenting organization's Founder, Sylvia Dunnavant.

Every year, The Celebrating Life Foundation provides culturally relevant information to the community and raises money to continue the work of the foundation. According to their website, walkers, volunteers, corporations and community supporters from throughout the Dallas/Cedar Hill community unite each year to walk and address the risks of breast cancer among African American women and women of color.

They also provide mammograms for uninsured women who qualify at this event.

Thanks to organizations like our church, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship and The Celebrating Life Foundation bringing awareness and opportunities to learn about the causes and treatment and links to various resources, I've since encountered several women who were diagnosed in the early stages and have survived! I also had my first mammogram a few years ago and after examination was sent to lab for follow-up because of some concern. Thankfully, I was cleared but it was quite a scary moment so I'm very grateful for early detection and information.

This organization has been blessed and is a blessing to others and I'm looking forward to participating again next year!
