Yes, the event name is catchy and definitely captures your attention, but on October 28th in Washington, DC it was the amazing and resilient women who were present at “If My Tata’s Could Talk” that left you mesmerized. As many know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Entertainment/Lifestyle Blogger and DTLR Radio Personality Kierra wanted to shine some light on the women who are survivors and those currently going through the process of healing.
There were over 30 women and men who attended the Paint & Sip that brisk Friday evening and for brave speakers Kelly Cole, Morgan DePaolo, Tiffany Renee, and Shay Sharpe. In the intimate setting women and men were able to share stories, speak about survival and receive encouragement from everyone attending. There was one women who attended the event as she was in the midst of going through her treatment because she wanted to be surrounded by positive energy and even one of the speakers Tiffany Renee had just completed radiation and was due to begin chemotherapy the Monday after. “If My Tata’s Could Talk” was a safe haven that evening and also created an atmosphere full of no judgement and encouraged creativity to come through while painting.
Kierra has already decided that this will now be an annual event and for the debut, she partnered with Shay Sharpe’s Pink Wishes. Shay Sharpe’s Pink Wishes is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that grants wishes to young women age 40 and below, who have been diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. Not only is Shay a breast cancer survivor, but she and her team of supporters grant wishes annually, educate, mentor, and offer one on one support; often times sharing resources with survivors and co-survivors globally. Through sponsorship and donations, “If My Tata’s Could Talk” was able to raise over $600 to present to Shay Sharpe’s Pink Wishes!
