Laura's Bra

"My Girls" by Laura Nestler

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’re proud to boast that our very own BFF, Laura Nestler, has a creative and custom designed bra on display at the BJ Grand Salon & Spa 5th Annual Beautiful Bras fundraiser.

The annual event was developed to increase breast cancer awareness while all proceeds benefit “Look Good Feel Better,” a non-medical, brand-neutral public service program that teaches beauty techniques to cancer patients to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

The reality is, “IT” [Breast Cancer] can happen to anyone at any time. It is imperative to take the steps required to understand, detect, prevent and/or treat the disease – NOW! There’s no time like the present!

Many or most people are aware of the ‘existence’ of breast cancer; however, sadly, the ‘reality’ of it’s wrath may only hit when the disease impacts you personally. And in many cases, by that time, it’s already too late.

When our “boss” was diagnosed in 2012, the reality was super real and it was a life changer. We’re all thankful that Jill ‘lives by the rules’ and attends her annual mammogram appointments. Therefore, the cancer was found “early” however it was aggressive and it had to come out immediately.

Today, almost a year since her last treatment, Jill is cancer free and doing quite well. (Not to mention she has a snazzy new do). For those of us with the pleasure of knowing Jill, we are thankful she went to that appointment and we are so grateful to have her in our lives! So today we want others to realize breast cancer can happen to you, too, so protect yourself!

Laura participated in the event and dedicated her design titled “My Girls” to Jill. Laura and Omni want to encourage men and women to protect their health and to help spread the word about the importance of early detection, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer and to help find a cure!
