“Cancer, without a doubt is a life altering assignment.  No one wants this designation, nor wants to watch family or friends suffer through it.  We can, however empower ourselves to stand together as activists in a cause we all want to over-throw.  And no one bands together like Breast Cancer Survivors.  No matter the depths, these women soar to enable others to the empowerment of education and sisterhood on many levels, including tears and laughter.  The events at Mirbeau are a platform to that empowerment.  I truly look forward to seeing you there.”  – – Erika Davis, Owner Creekside Books & Coffee.
