A Pageant Dedicated to Raising Cancer Awareness {Dallas}

mslatina

I’ll be honest, I am not a huge fan of beauty pageants. Although, I did enjoy Miss Congeniality. That being said, I recently found out about a pageant in the Dallas area with a worthy cause. And that… I am all for!

Miss Latina Del Universo™  pageant was founded by two young cancer survivors, Heather Rodriguez (ovarian cancer) and Maria Rodriguez (breast & cervical cancer). This year they will hold their 1st annual Miss Latina Del Universo™ pageant with  a strict focus on cancer awareness. A portion of the proceeds will be going to Cancer Has Cancer, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising cancer awareness. Besides education, Cancer Has Cancer also provides emotional & financial support, connects people with needed resources, and raises funds for Molecular Cancer Research. Having worked in the health awareness field myself in the past, I know how barriers and lack of education can play a significant role in cancer outcome disparities. It is nice to know there is place where people in Dallas can turn to when faced with such a scary word as cancer.
