In 2010, Dr. Regina Flippin was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer, an aggressive cancer with little research and one that is three times more likely to affect African American women, and young white and Hispanic women before the age of 40. To raise awareness in the underserved and under represented communities about Triple Negative Breast Cancer, Dr. Flippin founded Flippin to a Cure.
On October 20 at the Milwaukee Art Museum, Flippin to a Cure will host its first "Rock the Runway event." The organization partnered up with NBC's TV fashion star, Barbara Bates who will design a special collection of clothes in which Breast Cancer survivors will get to "rock the runway." The proceeds from this event will benefit The Breast Cancer Center at Froedtert and The Medical College of Wisconsin.
