Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Three Brothers Bakery

October 7, 2016

It is no secret to many of you that I am a breast cancer survivor – thankfully, this year marks a full decade of being cancer-free. If you want to know my full story, you can read the blog post from last year where I detailed my own journey. But this is not about me. This is about making sure other men and women do not have to tell similar […]

We Raised the Dough and Made the Cake!

May 15, 2014

Many of you may remember last October, I had a FUNdraising campaign “raise the dough” and support Three Brothers Bakery’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure team.  If raised or gave the “dough” you were invited to the bakery to make the cake. Well…. we finally got to make that cake!

In light of Angelina Jolie’s announcement

May 15, 2013

In light of Angelina Jolie’s announcement of having a double mastectomy I decided to be one of the millions to weigh in on her decision.  Kudos for not only having the courage to come forward but kudos in putting your life and your family before having natural breasts.  WE ARE NOT OUR BREASTS!  And for those who might get cancer and have treatment WE ARE NOT OUR HAIR! Most who […]

Susan G. Komen – A Memory From The Early Years

September 28, 2012

In the early 1990s I was working at a telecommunications company in Dallas. Someone in our company met Nancy Brinker who had just created a charity called Susan G. Komen, in memory of her sister and with the purpose to wipe out breast cancer. It was a fledgling operation and finally they were moving into an office.

In the wake of the decision to not support Planned Parenthood and reversal of the […]
