Meet the Models
The photo shoot was an experience that I will never forget. It was a day that I was able to step away from all the worries that cancer brings. I felt like a ‘Queen for the Day.’ I left all my worries outside the door and entered a place of warmth and friendship.
Queen For The Day
I was diagnosed with a rare, metastatic breast cancer on December 6, 2012. I had a normal mammogram at the end of October, but felt a small lump a couple of weeks after.
Med Spa Services Rejuvenate
Every year, Hope Lives partners with area spas to provide services for the breast cancer survivor models featured in our fashion shoot. This is just one small way we help make this a fun and memorable experience for the women that participate in our magazine every year.
Finding a lump in her breast is every woman’s unimaginable nightmare. While not every lump portends cancer, it is important to make an appointment with your physician immediately after the initial wave of panic subsides.

The northern Front Range has continued to grow, even during the economic downturn, and some of the most exciting growth has taken place in Windsor.
