The Women Survivors Alliance is excited to announce Emme will be among the special guest speakers at the Second Annual National Women’s Survivors Convention.
This one-of-a-kind event designed to honor and inspire cancer survivors will take place Thursday, July 31 – Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
Emme is the iconic world’s first full figured supermodel, a globally recognized TV personality, author and clothing designer. She is also a survivor. In 2007, Emme was diagnosed with stage 2A Hodgkin’s Disease and buckled down for the challenge of her life and the impending treatment. At only 16, Emme lost her mother Sally, then 39, to lung, breast and bone cancer. Today Emme’s message is clear – to awaken the inner magnificence inherent in each of us.
Founded by the Women Survivors Alliance, the National Women’s Survivors Convention aims to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life and embrace their new normal.
Thanks to tremendous strides in research, more of us are now beating the beast called cancer. In fact, there are over 7 million women cancer survivors in this country. But a cancer diagnosis is a life game changer. Survivors must address the long-term and life limiting effects of the illness and its treatments including physical, emotional, psychosocial, legal and financial issues.
Emme joins honorary co-chairs Giuliana and Bill Rancic for the 2014 event, which will feature even more celebrities, cutting edge researchers, cancer-based organizations, networking opportunities, the Celebrate Survivors 5k and the opportunity for a night out downtown. Returning favorites from 2013 will include the Survivors Marketplace Expo and amazing Glamville makeovers.
