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.

The Great!

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.

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

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!!!!!

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!!!!

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.

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!

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.

A dear friend of mine, Lenora Johnson is a survivor and had such a passion for the ladies in the group. At the time, I was host to a TV show called "In the Company of Women", and "The Edge". I had this wonderful lady on my show several times. Her love for the ladies who are diagnosed with breast cancer was such a delightful and beautiful experience for me to share with my audience. Thank you Lenora, the world is a better place because of "Steel Magnolias". Donna Feazell

When I found out that I had stage IIIC breast cancer 6/08 a friend of mine turned my name in to the Steel Magnolias. We are not in the same town, but that didn't matter. They responded with many cheerful cards and drain bags that I have found useful, not only then but in a couple of surgeries since. They kept me on their email newsletter list. Maybe one day I will get to meet these gracious ladies. Betty Bridges, Birmingham

Steel Magnolias has helped my relatives affected by cancer, as well as many others in this county and several surrounding counties. They educate, support, and are active with projects to raise money to further their services. The members are personally motivated to be active. I admire them.
