As you all know, nationals is soon approaching And as exciting as that is, pageants aren’t all just based on looks. A good portion of how we are judged are on our platforms. And my platform is so absolutely important to me!!! My platform is Breast Cancer Awareness. This cause is so very important to me because, not too long ago, my aunt Donna Ward was diagnosed with breast cancer. My aunt Donna was a grade 1 teacher and telling her students that she to leave to beat breast cancer was such a hard thing to do being that she loves them all to bits! So on my aunt’s last day at the school, everyone wore pink and threw a little goodbye party, even though there were lots of tears, I know that they will all remember the great memories that she brought to the school. My aunt is so very close me, and when I heard this news, I was devastated. After a few painful chemo treatments it was official, my aunt Donna had beat Breast Cancer’s butt!!! Today, me and aunt together try to raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer so no one ever has to go through what she went through, and what our families went through!
