For Florida resident Carol Byrum, being diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer and skin cancer hasn't stopped her from fighting back, and raising awareness for the disease, NewSun.com reports.
Bryum recently attended a "bra party" in her honor at a local restaurant surrounded by 30 friends wearing cleverly decorated bras on the outside of their clothes.
All bras were pink and had designs to represent a specific area of the body. From tassels and jewels to sparkles, all bras were special and helped spread breast cancer awareness
"I don't know how women wear these things," Michael Armstrong, a registered nurse and co-worker with Byrum, told the news outlet. "These things are uncomfortable and getting something to fit right was a nightmare."
Although everyone was in attendance for a fun night, they were also there to help raise money for Bryum who is currently going through chemotherapy to combat her triple negative breast cancer.
"This is all about helping your neighbor," Armstrong told the news source.
With over 200,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in 2010, according to BreastCancer.org, spreading awareness in any way could prompt others to get tested, leading to a higher survival rate.
