We are honored to have the opporutnity to participate in the Ann's Place Fashion Show. Ann's Place is a phenomenal center that helps support those who have been diagnosed with cancer along with their family members who are fighting along beside them. Ann's Place is a non-profit organization and is a true gem in our community. This event is their biggest fundraiser to help keep their doors open and support all those fighting their battle with cancer. Every dollar earned makes a huge impact on someone's life.
As you know, our Mom, Judy Rogers fought an amazing cancer battle. Her journey began in 1994 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Unfortunately, the journey didn't stop there, but she fought an incredible battle for 21 years. She defeated all odds and was a walking miracle in the eyes of doctors. Without highly educated medical professionals and medicine, we wouldn't have had her here with us to celebrate so many key milestones, from high school and college graduations, weddings, and the birth of her 5 grandchildren.
Our Mother is our hero and our angel. A woman who over the course of 21 years endured so much pain both emotionally and physically. And for all of you who knew her, she never walked around without a smile on her face. Not only did she battle it physically but she fought through it emotionally with pride, courage, a smile and a positive outlook on her condition. Mom was an incredible example of phenomenal strength and determination and no matter what the diagnosis, she was bound to defeat it.
Please consider donating to this wondeful organziation. No matter how big or small your contribution, every dollar keeps these amazing doors open to support cancer patients and their families. Cancer has touched so many of our lives, from family members to very dear friends. We are all in this together and will fight this ugly disease side by side.
If you live in the area, please join us on Thursday, April 25th @ 6:30pm at the Ridgefield Playhouse to watch Susan, Catherine and her three daughters (Kayla, Caitlyn and Chloe) participate in the show. Tickets will be available on the Ridgefield Playhouse website.
