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.

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'm a breast cancer survivor since 1998. This group was the only group in my area that helped me cope with my cancer. They provided me with a welcome basket as well as other helpful information. They deserve this recognition.

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.

Wonderful group, that deserves this reward. They have helped many people become aware of breast and cervical cancer, as well as given back to the community.

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,
