On Saturday, June 3, I will be modeling again in Art Bra Austin, an event benefiting the Breast Cancer Resource Center. Art Bra is a fully-costumed runway show where myself and other breast cancer survivors walk the runway wearing extravagant bras (which are then auctioned off at the end of the night!)
By supporting me, it will help fund the BCRC, an organization here in Austin that helps women navigate a scary diagnosis with breast cancer. They helped me so much when I got diagnosed in 2015. I didn't know anyone else that was in or had been in my shoes, especially anyone in their 20s, and they helped connect me to other young women and provided me with so many resources. They really are invaluable and they run on donations.
I really appreciate your support and I know so many other women could say the same thing!
Thanks and love,
Help. Hope. Here.

Art Bra® Austin
Art Bra® Austin is a charity fundraiser like no other. Every year, Austin's talented community of artists, designers, and jewelers submit their original works of wearable art to be showcased by a dynamic group of Art Bra® Austin Models - all breast cancer survivors and clients of BCRC. This feisty group of BCRC clients reflect the diversity of the thousands of women we serve annually. For most, Art Bra® Austin is a transformative experience. The unique event is a tribute to their courage, strength, and tenacity and the result is a triumphant show filled with light, color, movement, and most of all - attitude!
Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC)
The Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) is a nonprofit organization providing guidance, education, and assistance to thousands of local women whose lives have been disrupted by breast cancer. Staffed by breast cancer survivors, BCRC helps each woman find her footing and determine the solutions that are right for her.
BCRC was founded in 1995 as a volunteer-staffed helpline and a single support group. Today, in addition to being survivors, BCRC staff are trained support professionals and experts in where to go, what to do next, and how to keep a woman moving forward through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. We serve more than 2,200 women annually, offering personalized guidance, robust educational opportunities, and several financial and personal assistance programs. All of it – free of charge – to the client.
