This year, Komen Acadiana started a new program to help raise awareness and funds for the many projects provided and funded through Komen.

The new program, the Big Wigs, was gracious enough to nominate me as one of this year’s Big Wigs! I am so excited!

I am trying to raise money for Komen Acadiana.  This Sunday, October 18th, we will have a donation drive at our studios to raise funds for Komen.  It will start at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.

If you can contribute, you will be helping women in Acadiana battling breast cancer.  It will be a drive thru donation event. You don't even have to get out of your car!

Our address at Townsquare Media is 1749 Bertrand Drive.

Don't want to get out of the house? No problem! You can donate online at http://komenacadiana.org/bernadette-lee/ .

I really appreciate if you can help, and if you can’t help with money, you can help with heart.  You can pray for all of the women who have lost their struggle with breast cancer and their families.

You can pray for all of the women who are fighting their battle right now, and pray for the women in remission, that we can find a cure for this horrible disease. You can also pray for my friend Polly as she continues to kick her breast cancer in the butt! You go Polly! We love you!  She is just past her fifth year anniversary of being breast cancer free!
