$10 cover at the door, with all proceeds going to Komen. Cash only. We’ll have drink and food specials that will also benefit the cause.
Back on September 11th, 2009 Joyce Carpenter (Janae’s mom) was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer, starting a year of chemotherapy, a double masectomy and radiation treatment. Every day brought new changes.But through it all, Joyce found that these challenges and changes opened new doors – she found new favorite foods, learned new tricks for styling the head scarf, and made new friends while finding fun new hats. A whole new language was formed – ‘Boob Off Day’ (the day of her masectomy, April 20, 2010) and her ‘Second Birthday’ (April 28, 2010 – the day she found out she was cancer-free). Janae and Joyce will be walking together in this year’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, September 16-18.
