On November 2nd, 2013 a record number of people gathered at LP Field early morning to help make strides against breast cancer. “I decided to participate and get others involved because this is a great opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, remember loved ones we’ve lost, and help raise funds to continue the research to fight breast cancer”, says Queen Brooklyn Tankard.
More than 27,000 people affected by breast cancer participated in this year's 5-mile walk. In America, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women each year and more than 40,000 will die.
As a woman of empowerment, Queen Brooklyn recognizes this unfortunate reality and is making it her duty to be a part of the movement to end breast cancer! “I really enjoyed having my family and friends join me in the breast cancer walk! We all walk because we’ve been affected by breast cancer in some way, and because the Making Strides event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back,” says Queen Brooklyn.
As the owner of Queen Brooklyn’s Virgin Hair (QBVH), Queen Brooklyn has an annual hair and fashion explosion that benefits cancer survivors. She has helped to provide multiple scholarships to women and men battling cancer. In addition to attending and hosting national charity functions, she participates in self-empowerment workshops and conventions that encourage people to push past their circumstances and into their destiny.
