Desiree' Rogers : A hero in more ways than one
Not only is this African American woman successful beyond all thought but I was reading up about Ms. Rogers and found out she is a survivor of Breast Cancer. Coincidentally, October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I'd like to dedicate this post (and month) to this woman. She is far beyond just an inspiration to myself but to know that someone as smart and as powerful as she is is still human and still faces real problems is hard-hitting for me. We often see these people we label as our role-models to be super-human but to know that she fought and won in the battle against a life-threatening disease such as breast cancer is amazing. Desiree' Rogers - you are truly a hero of mine.
