I was browsing the news articles one night and happened to come about this one article that really made me smile. It was nice to see a news article that brought hope to us people; after watching various government related news.

Some of you may have heard of Bridal Trunk Shows for Breast Cancer—or something that has to do with brides and breast cancer.

For the breast cancer patients: “80 percent of the proceeds go to breast cancer research and free services and programs for patients.” In the article is also mentions how they “…work with oncologists and a lot of other doctors who have the most up-to-date research on nutritional needs, stress management, counseling services…”
