WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - It's a sisterhood weaved with stories of survival and struggle. The Ta Ta Sisterhood of the Cape Fear is a place for women and men who have experienced breast cancer, and this weekend is one of their most impactful fundraisers.
Saturday will be the annual "calendar release bodacious party." It's a tastefully done, pinup style calendar full of women who are fighting or who have survived breast cancer.
"Every day I have to look at my scars from surgery and they are scary," said Joanne Meisenhelder. "I'm still trying to deal with them. The calendar shoot is to show women that their bodies are still as beautiful as they have always been, no matter the harshness of cancer treatments or surgeries."
This is the third year the sisterhood has released calendars and this year's event will be at the Cape Fear Museum starting at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 29.
