Favorite Charity: Bosom Buddies
When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I was given five years to live. I was determined to survive and never wanted any other woman to have to fight this fight alone. Twenty-five years ago, I founded Bosom Buddies at the Women's Center of Jacksonville. Three different primary cancers and 27 years later, I am still going strong and have served more than 7,000 women without ever charging a penny for our services. We are the lifeline for women with breast cancer in North Florida.
A portion of the proceeds of the handcrafted jewelry I make and sell at health fairs and craft fairs goes to support Bosom Buddies. It all comes out of my personal pocket.
