THE STORY:

Photographer, two-year survivor and 2014 Ford Warriors in Pink Model of Courage, Laurie Tennent was relieved to find out about her diagnosis. She had been quite ill prior to finding the lump. “There are things we can do, people we can see. Now that we know why I feel this way...Let’s do this!” She didn’t miss a lot of work, because she had a lot of naturpathic support, but her treatment could have been financially devastating. And, because she owns her own business, she said, “If I don’t work, I don’t get paid. I had a big awakening to how I would be financially. I was surprised and relieved to receive The Pink Fund’s gift. I supported the organization for years prior to being a recipient, photographing events and donating time. I respect the "Real Help Now" that the Pink Fund provided. Never thinking I would need their help...but when I was in need, The Pink Fund was there. It was truly a blessing.”

On dancing, Laurie says she loves to dance, although she’s never danced to a choreographed piece. Unlike her other Dancing With The Survivor Sisters, who are paired with Fred Astaire Dance Studio professionals, Laurie is dancing with her husband, Gordon Cox. “I am very excited to dance with my husband. He was so supportive of me along the journey it makes him a survivor as well. This dance feels like an extension and celebration of that partnership.”

On October 2, Laurie and Gordon will dance the Argentine Tango in support of The Pink fund because “The Pink Fund is practical, you see results. Bills are paid, patients see the relief and stress is lifted.”
