Save the Date: October 1, 2011 2nd Annual There & Back: A Celebration of Survival
Save the date! This year's event will be very, very special. The worlds of medicine, fashion and history will combine to celebrate life and survival.
There & Back: A Celebration of Survival will be held at Christ's Church & Parish Hall in Oyster Bay, Teddy Roosevelt's church. We will tribute his eldest daughter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth. She was a fashion icon, writer, rebel and breast cancer survivor. We will trace breast cancer over the years through the fashions of famous breast cancer survivors including Alice, Abigail Adams Smith, Bette Davis, Ingrid Bergman, Myrna Loy, Greta Garbo, Hattie McDaniel, Brigitte Bardot, Julia Child and many, many more. The Warrior Angel Survivor Models will return to model the vintage fashions.
We will chronicle the advances in breast cancer treatment and surgery over the years and our Honoree is unquestionably the most talented, compassionate and well respected reconstructive surgeon in the United States, Dr. Ron Israeli.
Set aside this day now so you won't miss the music, the champagne, the fashion, the love and the celebration of survival- No Surrender Style!!!!
