Silhouette of a Woman - the pre-game show

Tonight was the rehearsal for the Silhouette of a Woman fashion show at the Bardavon.  I was asked by Beth from Elizabeth Boutique to be one of her models and I quickly agreed.  This is to benefit the Miles of Hope organization and Beth has been hard at work putting it all together.  Here she is doing her thing -

They have over 60 models and I'll be appearing in the Shadows scene.  We did a quick run thru tonight.  Walking to center stage, walking through the audience and back up.  It was quite funny how many of the models were very serious about their jobs.  The second part we came out associated with our boutique and salon - it was nice to represent both Elizabeth's and New Creations - Beth has been very supportive of me and Colleen made me feel great by making me a red head once again!

The very last part, each survivor is announced with the length of time since diagnosis.  11 months for me.  I'm the newbie, so to speak.  Many people said congratulations to us and we shared our stories between us.  Again, as I stand there, I'm simply amazed it's me.  That I'm counted among the 'sisters'.  Totally surreal - I'm betting tomorrow night is worse....

I can only imagine the support you feel at these kind of events! When I attend the relay for life walks I always leave feeling energized and happy even though cancer is a scary thing the amount of support worldwide whether you are a survivor and just someone that wants to help find a cure - it is truly an indescrible feeling. xoxo Lisa
