Forward thinking Radiation Oncologist Janna Andrews, M.D. Launches Kicked It in Heels
Putting her money and time where her mouth is, physician launches Breast Cancer Organization to fight health care disparities and to help women embrace their sexy after cancer
The event will be laced in everything beautiful! From the venue, to a live DJ, complimentary signature cocktails and a silent auction, this awareness event has been created to acknowledge survivors in their efforts to reclaim their normal lives as confident, vibrant women. The event will also be a vehicle to provide the tools women need to move forward and simply embrace their beauty. “The face of breast cancer should represent all women”, says founder Janna Andrews, M.D., “once we’ve treated a woman, what happens next? There is very little emphasis placed on regaining normal, and that should include feeling beautiful.”
Dr. Andrews has pulled together a distinguished host committee of beautiful people that possess the same passion to bring awareness to the development of women’s self-esteem during and after cancer. The event host committee includes: Dr.Shirley Madhere, Keeba Williams Henry, Janina Lundy, Dr. Aletha Maybank, Tamayu Takayama, Sincere Thompson, Dr. Janna Andrews, Marisa King-Redwood and Erika Munro Kennerly.
The evening will culminate with donations to non-profit breast cancer organizations dedicated and consistent with the theme of the event, the American Cancer Society and the Young Survival Coalition.
For more information on the organization, please contact: Janna Andrews, MD., at 404.519.3790, Jzandrews1@gmail.com.
