WLDE - Chatting with Old and New Friends!

WLDE and MAJIC aired a conversation between friends on Sunday - our good friend Carrie Wellman, board president Sharon Simmons and survivor Adoria Dowdell - as they chatted about Francine's Friends.

Carrie and her sister both got their mammograms on the coach - and loved it (we knew they would). And you'll be hearing more from and about Adoria at our "Lunch with Friends" on Oct. 12th - she's one of our 8 featured models and breast cancer survivors. Thanks Carrie!
