The celebration of five breast cancer survivors took place at CEI Hair School, located at 88 Peachtree St SW and included hair and makeup services provided by CEI students and a photo shoot by ACE Photos. In addition to the makeovers and photo shoot, the Table Talk discussion was led by Jana Tarnovska who facilitated exercises in positive energy. The survivors that were honored are: Naomi Gaithers, Tonya Murphy, Suzanne Nelson, two-time survivor Sabrina White and Angela Morris who received her last treatment in August.
Each honoree was presented with roses and gift bags sponsored by Upscale Magazine, Beautiful Textures, Liquid Gold Hair Products, Metamorphosis Salon and Still Standing Foundation. Support sponsors for the day included Bellavue Events, 2 Pink, Creative Engine Design & Prints, Nurse Nicole and Felicia Mahone, former Charge Up honoree and 10-year breast cancer survivor.

ABOUT CHARGE UP CAMPAIGN
The Charge Up Campaign and The Table Talk Series were both created by Charessa Sawyer as a testament to her mother, who is a breast cancer survivor. She says that while her mother was undergoing treatment, it wasn’t until she and her siblings sent their mother on a vacation that she started to have a more positive outlook on life. Because of this, Charessa sees a significant portion of her life’s purpose is to bring awareness to the survivorship of cancer and creating a fraternity of survivors to create a global support system.
