elaine-prejeanElaine Prejean – My 2nd Act Houston 2016

Blossoming third round breast cancer thriving survivor, Elaine Prejean’s cancer journey has been built on the following scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good not disaster to give you a future and a hope and future.” Jer. 29:11. Elaine will continue  a 21 day cycle for treatment of metastatic breast cancer, that spread on one lung, indefinitely.  Elaine’s walk of faith has opened doors to an array of educational awareness opportunities about the disease.  This amazing lady is featured in Beauty Beyond Breast Cancer 2017 calendar. Elaine is the founding Director of M.E.T. (Miss Elaine’s Transformers) Unmasking Metastatic Breast Cancer – Kissing Cancer Goodbye. A foundation focused on raising awareness and funds for metastatic breast cancer research.

We salute Elaine for being “survivor strong” and are grateful that she shared her story as part of My 2nd Act in Houston this year. You rock, Elaine!
