By Jewelrygal @1928jewelry

I know Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in October, but I think another post is due on this important topic, because tomorrow we are celebrating!

Stefanie LaRue is a supermodel, Metastatic Breast Cancer Survivor, patient Advocate, Spokesperson and warrior. She was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only 30 and was told by doctors she only had one year to live. Well, it’s been more than 5 years and she’s cancer free and alive as can be! It’s Stefanie’s birthday tomorrow and 1928 wanted to help celebrate and help raise more awareness about the disease. (Happy B-Day Stefanie!
