  • This show is not about "only the bride"; it's about Life, it's about a woman and a man, it's about Love and Caring, it's about fighting, it's about running a race and winning, it's about Survivors.
  • We are excited about this event, as this is the first time that we have been a part of anything of this magnitude that touch so many hearts, so many families, and equally affect men, as well as women.
  • The out-reach is phenomenal, we feel sadness, we feel joy and we are amazed as we learn and grow about the illness, we are fulfilled through the folks and organizations that we have met, and have become a part of our lives.
  • We are supporting a cause, the research, continual education, the preventive care of breast cancer, and making memories for the terminally ill.


          We look forward to seeing you at the show on May 2, 2009 and May 3, 2009.
