I have know and have be honored to be a part of this wonderful group of Women and Men. They do so much to help cancer patients and survivors sending out care packages ,supplying information to evey woman they can reach .They send out nurses to Schools to talk about mammograms and how to do self exams and when to see a doctor.They supply dining vouchers for families at local Hospitals while their loved one is in surgery or getting Chemo treatments.I just can't say enough about this WONDERFUL group of dedicated Women. I might mention all of them have had or are still dealing with this dreadful disease..................... Dixie Reynolds

Although my issue wasn't breast cancer, I was facing possible malignant bladder cancer. Thanks to Lenora Johnson and Steel Magnolias fearless attitude, I went into surgery determined to handle whatever the diagnosis might be. After all, look at the strong women and men who make Steel Magnolias what it is today. Strength, fortitude, determination, positive attitude, support and love are just a few words I use to describe Steel Magnolias.

Thank you for being there when life sometimes flips us on our back side.

If you haven't meet this group of Women and Men you truly need to,to understand what Steel Magnolias are all about. Being that most of them are cancer surviors they know the physical and mental pain a family goes though. They are there to help diagnosed women and teach young women how to do self exams. I am honored to be a part of this non profit organization. They truly STEEL MAGNOLIAS.

I donate toiletries to put in care packages to go to new patients. It's an honor to be a part of this group.

I've personally seen what this group of Women and Men do for Breast Cancer victims.They run on donations but do so much.They give time,wigs,bras and food vouchers to families waiting for a loved on to get out of surgery. They also teach young women to do self exams and show them what to look for.Plus have fund raisers to keep this non profit orgination running.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't think I would change a thing except try and make more money to reach more families and make them aware of Steel Magonlias Thay mean so much to so many.

I haven't had any personal experience with Steel Magnolias, but have a friend and her mother that have. They received excellent support, and the caring they received was bar none. Everyone that becomes ill with a chronic illness, definitely needs some sort of support. Steel Magnolias does just that. They provide support and caring for the women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in Alabama.

I have not experienced the results of this organization. But have received support through the Williams Syndrome Association. Being the mother of the Williams Syndrome child, the support we received was extremely wanted and appreciated. I know that Steel Magnolias would go to the ends of the earth to be of support and assistance to a woman that is either a newly diagnosed breast cancer victim or even a breast cancer survivor. They are a loving bunch and care a great deal for those who are ill.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing, they are phenomenal.

The old saying goes, "if it ain't broke don't fix it!" I wouldn't change a thing. But this group needs this recognition.

The ladies of the Steel Magnolias are the most caring, strong women I have met. Each has been through the scariest moment in a woman's life. When she is told she has cancer.

The Newsletter is full of inforative articles and I love the joke section. You just have to laugh no matter how sad you feel.

These ladies and gentlemen have been to the schools, public groups and organizations to get the message out. Self Examaination at all ages and Mammagrams Help Save lives.

Their care packages bring so much love and caring with them when a woman needs all the support she can get.

This is a wonderful organization that does great work all over the country. They have sent care packages to friends of mine in Georga and Florida. You can see correspondence from all over the USA in their newsletter and on their website.

They definitely get my vote!

I was diagnosed mid 2010, and had no idea where to begin with anything. I'm not even sure how they found out about me, or if i contacted them its during the time frame of "everything is moving too fast". Every time I emailed them, called them about anything, i always got a fast response, and being that my schedule was not on a set routine, someone would just meet me there with just a phone call saying im on the way there now. They offered me just about everything you could imagine wigs, hats, scarves, you name it they offered it. The wigs were a big thing for me cause i didnt want to where the do rags too much, especially to church, and if i got tired of one they just let me trade it for a new one. Everything they do is awsome. cant say enough good things about them, friendly staff, clean enviroment,
