In true Moxy form, Moxy Women sets the date for this year’s event around the Republican National Convention. While politicians look to win an election, Americans are coming together to make a difference in the lives of people struggling with health issues.
Believing in miracles, creating hope, wellness education, early detection and new treatments are just part of the theme for the event. This year Moxy Women has decided to do its part to support another organization that is making a big difference in the lives of women, My Hope Chest. This organization founded by Alisa Savoretti, provides hope to uninsured women facing a mastectomy from breast cancer, the number two killer of women in America.
In creating two miracles in two days, Moxy Founder Jean Harper, reached out to well-known physician Robert Rehnke, M.D., of the Center for Surgical Excellence. Dr. Rehnke volunteered his hands to help create a miracle for one of the many uninsured women on the list at My Hope Chest. When asked why he is willing to support this event, he stated:
Health Care Reform is not the job of the government. It is every Americans responsibility!
Dr. Rehnke reached out to another well-known surgeon in St. Petersburg, Antonio Gayoso, M.D., who has also agreed to participate as a second opinion specialist. Dr. Ernest Rehnke, the brother of Robert Rehnke, has also volunteered his hands to offer the general surgery required for the mastectomy, prior to the reconstruction.
In addition, other local businesses have offered their support. Beautiful Transitions in Largo, Florida which offers wigs, apparel and other mastectomy needs, has provided a gift certificate for a synthetic wig; Euphoria Salon and Day Spa has offered a spa day, wig styling/head shaving and special treatments such as a manicure or pedicure. Details of this miracle, Americans helping Americans, will be announced at the concert. Harper added, “We hope to raise an additional $2500 to help cover the remaining costs of this complete medical miracle package for a woman in need.”
The second miracle will be announced at the Healthy Living Expo on Saturday. Dr. Cesar Lara has donated his services of a 12 week weight loss program for a deserving woman who needs to lose 50 pounds or more.
The Expo will offer educational sessions to help men and women understand the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. It will feature companies, health professionals, products, and services in both the traditional and alternative health care fields, offering new and exciting developments in health care diagnosis and treatment. In addition, inexpensive and free health screening exams and tools will be on display including more advanced screenings for breast cancer, vascular disease, and stroke screening.
The Friday evening concert will deliver important messages through music and entertainment. The evening will start off Americana style with a song dedicated to the next President of the United States. The songwriter, Chantelle Ashby, will debut the song at the concert.
The concert will feature the area’s most talented performers, vocalists, and musicians: Michigan born singer/songwriter and musician Jayne Kelli, Florida native and award winning performer Rebecca Zapen, American Idol Experience Dream Ticket winner Vanessa Quillao, actress and singer Becca McCoy, singer/songwriter and musician A.J. Swearingen, a special performance by Moving Arts of Tampa Bay, the talented vocalists Jennifer Real, Rossana Spallino, Chantelle Ashby and the Knockouts and Reggie Dockens, band members include Adam Shoemaker, and Doug Willcox.
