That was in 2011 and she didn't stop there. Now she's embarking on a 140-mile, six-day endurance run to raise money for breast cancer. She talked to FOX 4's Jenny Anchondo about what keeps her motivated. View the Video Interview

A Selfie for Service
Sept 10 - Many of us do not realize our own strength until we are faced with an obstacle so great, so seemingly insurmountable, that we are forced to dig deep and reveal our superhuman might to the world.
Sheila Taylor, VP of The Bridge Breast Network Board of Directors, understands this process all too well. This is why Family Dollar is recognizing this Lewisville, Texas native as the Show Off Your Selfie winner, a contest aimed at finding and highlighting one of EBONY’s most inspirational readers.
I received a letter that my examination indicated need for further evaluation… What if I had cancer... and then how could I get further testing when I did not have insurance or much money... I had been laid off from my job a year prior and had only been able to find a part time job. Barbara Quast, the Oncology Nurse Navigator… let me know about your program… In the end the testing came back with good news. Thank you so much Bridge Breast Network and thank you so much Barbara Quast.
