Local breast cancer survivors take to the runway for Maryland Farms YMCA’s celebratory fashion show
Grammy and CMA award winning country music artist Trisha Yearwood is sharing her time and talent to support breast cancer survivors finding strength and courage after treatment through the YMCA’s After Breast Cancer program.
Yearwood will emcee the YMCA’s annual Gary Force Acura Heroes in Heels Fashion Show benefiting the Y’s Annual Giving Campaign, which makes programs like After Breast Cancer possible. It’s a cause that’s personal for Yearwood.
“This cause is near to my heart because I lost my mom to breast cancer. These women are an inspiration and I’m so excited to be a part of the event,” Yearwood said.
After losing her mother to breast cancer in 2011, Yearwood recorded “PrizeFighter” the title track of her 2014 album. The song has become an anthem to women fighting the life-threatening disease.
