Thriving with Style
On Friday, I drove to Providence to give a talk at the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Research Foundation's ( http://gloriagemma.org/) annual conference. It was a wonderful day, and, as always, the best part was the chance to speak with others who have been through this experience.
I was especially taken by a man named Everett Hoag whose huge personality and warmth made me (and probably everyone) feel as though we had been lifelong friends. He is responsible for a unique and fabulous program called the Thriving with Style Fashion Club. A community project of RIFASHION.COM, working closely with the Gloria Gemma Foundation, Thriving with Style is a rare breast cancer resource: something that is glamorous and fun.
Here is a short description from their website and then a link to read more. No matter where you live, no matter how far you are from RI, this is worth exploring and enjoying:

Through his own experience as a son, brother, worker, volunteer and friend, founder Everett Hoag knows how easy it can be to lose our "self" in the business of life.
Thriving with Style Fashion Club's mission is to offer learning experiences that will create wonderful opportunities to re-connect with a heart-felt life and celebrate who we are as people.
