My sister was diagnosed in07 with breast cancer. She had moved to Oxford for her job and had no family there and so when she was diagnosed to have friends like steel Magnolias there to help support her was wonderful. She became involved with the group and she has enjoyed helping and has also been helped by them. I beieve they kept her spirits up and helped her get involved with others going thru the same thing and she has loved working with Lenora and the others. And I admire my sister sooo much for what she has gone thru and she will continue to stay STRONG!!!!!

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and we met Steel Magnolias at the hospital where my mother had her surgery. This group has been wonderful. They are extremely supportive and have had an immense impact on my mother as she is dealing with this disease. I am very grateful to Lenora and all of her wonderful volunteers for everything they are doing to help my mother.

I was fortunate enough to be on the ground floor of this wonderful organization. Lenora Johnson is one of the most determined, brave women I have ever met in my life! She took a horrible situation and made something good come from it. The dedication of Steel Magnolias is amazing to me, they go above and beyond to help not only breast cancer patients but also their families and friends. Lenora has "been there, done that" and wants to make sure that EVERY woman is informed and will not stop until it is done. They have a program for the school age girls that teach them about early detection. I always look forward to seeing Lenora come in the shop to hear of the new and wonderful things that Steel Magnolias will be doing! I am honored to be able to say, Lenora Johnson is a friend and an inspiration to me. Steel Magnolias is the most wonderful organization I have ever had the privilege to work with. Strong, beautiful women fighting the good fight!!!!

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity I have been associated with Steel Magnolias for several years. I had to obtain information associated with filing documents for this organization. Therefore, I had to know in detail what this organization did for the public. I have been extremely impressed with the service these people offer. They have found a ministry that was not being served with cancer patients in this area of Alabama. I personally donate to Steel Magnolias and pray that they are can continue to serve those in need for many years to come. Jeff Owens

My sister is the president and founder of Steel Magnolias Breast Cancer Support Group, Inc. Talk about taking lemons and making lemonade. Lenora has fought many battles in her life and with God's help and her fortitude, Lenora has always landed on her feet. For anyone who is faced with this terrible prognosis and need someone in their corner, Lenora and Steel Magnolias members are the ones you want. I love you sis and I'm very, very proud of you. You and the strong women and men in Steel Magnolias reach out to so many people and work to change interrupted lives for the better.

Hello, I am so thankful for the Steel Magnolias Breast Cancer Support Group. My mother had yearly mammograms and thought she was OK. In December of 2008, she had colon surgery and discovered she had colon cancer. The surgeon also discovered breast cancer and removed her right breast. In one month, her whole life changed. She is a R.N. and is 79. Her R.N. license is still active and she plans to keep it. She has been supported by the Steel Magnolias since her surgeries. They have provided a wig, bra, hats; anything she needed. Our whole family is so grateful for the love, friendship, honesty, and kindness shown by the Steel Magnolias. I am her caregiver. I help her when she needs me. Most of the time she likes to be independent. I am her daughter, Melody. I love to attend the Steel Magnolias Group meeting each month. Everyone learns a lot and shares a nice meal. They are the Best!!!

The community benefits by the wonderful work of Lenora Johnson, who founded the Steel Magnolias. She was successful in getting a very important bill passed in the Alabama Legislature. Uninsured women will have mammograms and pap smears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one more amazing group of ladies!!! They are an inspiration to all that come in contact with them. Their individual journeys may differ in some aspects, but their fight for a cure binds their heart stings together. They work for the day when Breast Cancer will be wiped out and their children won't have to worry about it in their lifetime! My hat goes off to them as they touch the lives of so, so many across the nation.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen them at work ~ fund raising, fund raising, fund raising. Their heart is all about reaching survivers and educating young ladies for early detection. There is no end to their energy when it comes to working for the cause.

Ways to make it better...

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

See that their wish for unlimited funded was granted so that the fight against Breast Cancer could be excellerated.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They have one goal, one heart ~ reaching women thru education and support to fight the deamon of Breast Cancer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

ladies of great courage and strength!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world and give women hope of a much brighter future!

Ways to make it better...

There was just more hours in the day!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

limited funds ~ the money never goes far enought when you are talking about research and saving the lives of our mothers, daughters and sisters.

One thing I'd also say is that...

You've got to see this group of ladies for yourself. They are on mission to stamp out Breast Cancer!

As a Care Coordinator for Breast Cancer Patients and facilitator for a Breast Cancer Support group, I am always looking for ideas to better serve this population. When I contacted Steel Magnolias, it was clear that they are a group dedicated to the education, early detection and support of breast cancer prevention, detection and support during treatment. I enjoy their newsletters and their program for young women in breast self exams and early detection is a valuable part of their overall services.

I am not in the immediate service area of the Steel Magnolias, but I receive their monthly newsletter (via email - keep it green!) I 1st encountered them when they had a team in the Birmingham, AL Komen Race For The Cure. Then,as square dancers, my husband & I attended a square dance/silect auction in Anniston as a fund-raiser for them. They do a great job giving much needed support to breast cancer patients in north-east Alabama. As a 10-year survivor myself, I know how much their support means to newly diagnosed patients & their families. Great job & keep it up.

Without Steel Magnolias, this fight would have been tougher and lonely. They knew what I was going thru...They all had experienced it. Moving from another area and not having family local, they were there. Provided me with the essentials that I needed before and after my mastectomy and chemo treatments. With them, my journey with the "BIG C", as challenging as it was, ended with a new group of friends and survivors. I AM ONE OF THEM, A STEEL MAGNOLIA AND SURVIVOR!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

2007 when I was diagnoised with Stage II Breast Cancer.I love this group of women because they are spreading the word by educating young women about self breast exams that will save lives by going into our schools. How awesome is that!!

I got involved. Even though I am not involved as I once was, I loved every minuted of it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and sincere.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do wonders on educating young women in self breast exams. Early detection is the key. Until a cure is found.
