She told the attendees about not only her own struggle with cancer but also her mother’s struggle with cancer and how difficult it was to explain it to her children. She explained how important it was in the middle of her cancer battle to keep up her spirits and give her last bit of energy to her children to ease their struggle, and the big role music had in helping her heal.The MOMS extended a wholehearted thank you to guests for attending this important event and for supporting breast cancer awareness month. Denise Albert took off her wig for the first time in public as Kristin Chenoweth had expressed a wish to see her without it.Kristin Chenoweth’s speech revolved around how inspirational it is to see Denise fight her cancer so fiercely and how Melissa is there for her through thick and thin just like a sister. She also went on to explain how during lower days, music helps to inspire and lift one up and how music has helped her get through the devastation of having both a mother and two aunts battle breast cancer. Said Chenoweth, “Music is the vibration that heals the soul”.Through the Warriors in Pink program, Ford is committed to helping those touched by breast cancer and has dedicated $130M to research, education and support services. Warriors in Pink (#WarriorsInPinkMOMS) also empowers people to take real action to help those battling the disease through the More Good Days initiative (#MoreGoodDays), which launched in 2015 to help lessen the burden on those living with breast cancer and bring them what they ultimately deserve – more good days.The MAMARAZZI event is part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein helping to raise awareness about how to bring More Good Days to those living with breast cancer. Denise, currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer, alongside her friend and business partner, Melissa, can offer insights from first-hand experience into dealing with the everyday challenges of fighting breast cancer and finding the strength within to continue the fight.
