Breast cancer gave them these lessons:
Tomorrow is not promised. Honor the opportunities you have been given.
Live larger, love deeper and never take one day for granted.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
Live your life in the best way possible. Try to make a difference in the lives of others.
Nothing can stop you.
Cloaked in confidence, the more than 60 models of Art Bra Austin walked the runway and worked the floor of the Austin Convention Center on Saturday night to support the organization that has been their support network, Breast Cancer Resource Center.
Wearing bras made by local artists with titles like “Thrive,” “Flare,” “Cancer Picked the Wrong Girl” and “The Warrior Within,” they posed and strutted and talked about what they had learned and how they had been helped by the center.
The bras were auctioned to help the center support more than 2,200 women a year with support services at diagnosis, through treatment and after treatment, all at no cost.
The event was expected to raise about $475,000.
Here are some of the scenes from Art Bra Austin.
