Recording Artist, Angelina Sherie is the featured artist for the event. Renee Knorr, international model and fashion guru, will host the fashion show portion of the event. You are in for an real treat!

The organization was founded in 2010 by military combat veteran, Anisa Palmer, who lost her mother to breast cancer. We provide economic support, prevention education, and health & wellness services to our community members affected by breast cancer.

Alarming facts: “One woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S. and every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.” Your contribution helps us in our life saving programs as we continue to “support the fighters” who are diagnosed with breast cancer and spread prevention tips and education to the communities. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.

Please reach the Executive Director, Anisa Palmer, for additional information if needed at Anisa.Palmer@IWillSurviveInc.org and be sure to visit us on the web and like our facebook page, connect with us on instagram, and follow us on twitter.#aNightofFashoin #IWillSurviveInc @IWillSurviveInc

We look forward to seeing you there and thank you for “supporting the fighters” of breast cancer.

Warmest regards,

“April Showers Bring May Flowers”

Standard

Transitioning from April to May was great for I Will Survive, Inc. We had our amazing #IWSribboncuttingceremony on April 18, 2015 and Mayor Pittman proclaimed the day to now be known as the “I Will Survive” day. What an honor to all those who are battling breast cancer and all those who survived. Mothers, fathers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, brothers, daughters, sons… a special moment to honor those who lost the fight against breast cancer as well. Karen Palmer, was born on April 18, 1952 and gave birth to 5 children before the tender age of 38 when she had a final lung failure due to the malignant tumor spreading.

Rain was in the forecast and our new building (donated for one year) was not large enough to bring everyone inside for the ceremony. We opened with Pastor Cail and the rain moved out of the clouds. God shed light through the rays of the sun and the gloomy day became bright. It was a joyous day. $523 dollars was raised to help fund our programs and we hope to have our Office Manager and Receptionist hired soon to help us run our programs out of a building we can now call home.

Show your mothers love, not only on Mother’s day coming up, but cherish them everyday. We do not know how long they have on this earth. Kiss them, hug them, tell them that you love them, and appreciate them. For I, Anisa Palmer, founder of I Will Survive, Inc., nonprofit organization for breast cancer awareness through education and funding in lower-income communities, wish that I spent more time doing that in the short amount of years that I had my dear mother, Karen Palmer, by my side.

And rain on our future mothers so they can blossom into magnificent women. Inspire them to be community leaders and women of virtue. Give them knowledge to help them succeed. Mentor them. Teach them. Lead them. And support them as we continue to “Support the Fighters”.

As persons become increasingly able to form loyalties, the practical and on-going devotion to a cause bigger than themselves, and as these loyalties become unifiable in the higher purposes of groups of persons over many generations, humanity is increasingly better able to recognize that the highest ideal is the creation of a perfected “beloved community” in which each and every person shares. – Josiah Royce
