Paying Homage to Gwen Ifill

Hearing that long-time Journalist Gwen Ifill passed away on Monday, November 14, 2016 from a type of Uterine (endometrial) Cancer saddened many, especially  BlackWomenStandUp.com’s  (BWSU) Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton, who in 2013 lost her mother to the same type of cancer.  That prompted an annual cancer awareness initiative “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay” Day (read more about that “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” April 10th, 2016).  Today we pay homage to Gwen Ifill, a woman who made such an impact on the world through her work, and we honor this Queen by adding her to our Cancer Memorial Wall, which honors Black Women and all Women of Color who have transitioned on from either one of the five types of gynecological cancers or breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Central Park Walk

This past Sunday, October 18th in Central Park, New York City, women and men showed up in record numbers to walk in the Making Strides in Central Park Walk Against Breast Cancer.  There were many there walking in honor of a loved one who lost their fight against breast cancer, or to celebrate and walk in solidarity with a survivor in their life. Whatever ones’ reason for participating, it was great to see so many standing up against this horrible disease that has affected so many families.

Below are pictures from the walk that a few of our supporters shared with the BlackWomenStandUp.com community.
