My sister Gloria has always been my idol but now she is over the top. She has not only accepted her newly acquired “be-wigged” status but the endless amount of glamor that she put in place has given all who love her a tinge of happiness for her new and younger look. Nothing like a new “do” to give one a lift! Gloria has the amazing ability to rise above and beyond most expectations and I truly admire her courage and fortitude to move on.

    My mother is truly courageous in her battle with breast cancer and her kids are very proud of her.

    Thanks to everything that the Side-Out Foundation has done for raising awareness to this disease and providing an outlet for the Northern Virginia community to share in the fight.
