Telling one’s tale of battling cancer

GREENVILLE — While some Bras for the Cause submissions are meant to make onlookers laugh, others tell a very different and rather personal tale of struggle. Bras like the one Stephanie Coelho created.

It was an advertisement in the paper that first caught Coelho’s eye and introduced her to Bras for the Cause in 2009, approximately one week before the event was set to take place in downtown.

Coelho had just gotten through with her chemotherapy and radiation treatments at the Lou and Jack Finney Cancer Center and decided to give Bras for the Cause creator, Janeen Cunningham, a call and offer her assistance. The rest, as they say is history.
