The Weasler Auditorium of the Marquette University located at Milwaukee; W.I in the United States of America will come alive on
October 28th as Nollywood actress, Juliet Uzoma Aguwa is set to stage her fashion show tagged ‘Fashion for the Cure’.
According to the mother of two and the founder of the Courage to Dare Foundation the show will feature African and Western designs while also serving as a platform to further give succor to women living with Breast Cancer.
“The ‘Fashion for the Cure’ show is aimed at helping the African woman eradicate the numerous challenges they face in the quest to cure and manage the dreaded disease. It is also geared towards giving hope to those affected by Breast Cancer and women in countries that lack the resources to diagnose and manage the disease.” She said.
The beautiful mother of two daughters who herself survived the pangs of the disease when she was diagnosed of aggressive Breast Cancer stage 3c in 2008 also revealed that she is driven by the need to provide access to information about the disease which is posing a serious threat to mankind.
“Most people think Breast Cancer is a disease suffered only by women. It will interest most people to know that men are also prone to the disease. Through Courage to Dare Foundation, I am determined to ensure that individuals of African descent have access to information about Breast Cancer and also have access to preventive mammogram screenings.
“These days, I feel as though Breast Cancer gave me a new life. Before I had breast cancer, I worked hard on being a mother and a wife, and I think one of the things I neglected most was me! So after cancer, I decided that you only have one time to live your life. I want to go back to the film industry. I am pursuing a master’s degree in public health in Wisconsin where I live now. I am also going to keep talking about the disease because people have to know that being diagnosed with Breast Cancer doesn’t mean that they are going to die, that with early detection and quick action, they can survive breast cancer.” She added.
