3rd Annual Halloween Masquerade Ball: Unveiling Hidden Truths
This social affair was presented to increase awareness as well as to help raise funds for research into the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivors and cure of the disease that plagues so many women- Breast Cancer; specifically Triple Negative Breast Cancer. This annual event is orchestrated to bring together professionals, graduates, and scholars who support Breast Cancer Awareness and desire the finest in social stimulation and networking.T
This year was a special undertaking as the festivities were sponsored by the newest addition to the Courvoisier collection; Courvoisier Gold along with Courvoisier Rose and Courvoisier C. Guests in attendance were able to thoroughly enjoy an evening of social celebration and liberal tasting of these smooth and full-bodied premium cognacs at their leisure. The atmosphere was set by the sounds of the up and coming R&B Jazz group Dyles Mavis and our host, the incomparable Leo Breckenridge.
Although you may have missed the festivities, we don’t want you to miss the purpose and message that motivated this event, below are just a few pertinent facts about Breast Cancer and the significance and mission of Triple Step Towards The Cure:
Triple Negative Breast Cancer is a negative subtype of breast cancer that lacks three important receptors known as estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and Human Epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). Testing negative to all three of these hormone receptors means the cancer is triple negative and will not respond to hormone treatments, thus making chemotherapy, radiation and surgery the only current options for treatment.
Triple Step Toward the Cure® is an nonprofit organization composed of close knit group of supporters, breast cancer survivors, family members, medical professionals, and educators, that focuses primarily on prompting awareness of the lesser known Triple Negative breast cancer (TNBC). This form of cancer disproportionately targets young women between the ages of 30-45, often in the minority community. Their mission is to fight triple negative breast cancer by:
EDUCATING the public about triple negative breast cancer and supporting efforts to discover the cause of the disease, viable treatment options, and a cure;
ENCOURAGING women diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer as they battle the disease by providing emotional and financial support; and
EMPOWERING women at risk for the disease in under-served communities to be proactive and make informed decisions to ensure optimal health and wellness.
