The Breast Cancer Resource Centers first tugged on my heart strings back in the beginning of 2014 when I witnessed the extraordinary impact that they have on thousands of women’s lives each year. In June of last year, I was fortunate to be part of the Art Bra Austin show and experienced for the first time the beautiful silent auction, followed by Austin’s most inspiring Runway show. Survivors and women currently battling breast cancer entertained hundreds of guests and strutted down the cat walk with confidence and perseverance as they modeled art bras made by local artists. Each step celebrates the courage, unification and celebration of women with breast cancer. I am proud to say that First Connect is one of the official sponsors of the June 6th, 2015 event. We are excited to support the Breast Cancer Resource Center, whom believes that every woman’s journey is exceptional. For more information on how you can volunteer, donate and/or attend the Art Bra event, please visit The Breast Cancer Resource Center of Central Texas at and for more information about BCRC and the resources they provide please visit
