February 9, 2011 An Evening on the Pink Carpet

Parkway Plastic Surgery was proud to be a sponsor of “An Evening on the Pink Carpet” – a fundraiser for the Donna Foundation. Below is an excerpt from Action News Jax:

In a night filled with tears and cheers, mothers, sisters, daughters, wives and friends took the stage.  They were all part of a campaign for a cause — ending breast cancer.

Doctor Rebecca Glasser is a plastic surgeon who has worked with survivors including most on the stage.  She says, “It is amazing to watch the change in them from the beginning to end.”

It’s a long process that is filled with emotion.  Now, so many refuse to let cancer control them.

“An Evening on the Pink Carpet” was a fundraiser for the Donna Foundation.  Donna Deegan, a local journalist and dear friend of this writer, is a three time breast cancer survivor.  She started her foundation to raise money exclusively for the critical needs of women fighting the good fight.  Donna began the night on the pink carpet in a sassy outfit with knee high boots and brought the evening to an emotional close in an elegant pink dress proudly wearing the color of the cause.

Twenty women, twenty survivors, twenty stories center stage showing breast cancer is not a fatal diagnosis but an invitation to attack life.
