Health ambassador Raining Deer aka Jeanette Stephens-El has been tagged to lead Team O - The Oprah Magazine in the Avon39 Walk to End Breast Cancer this June 24 - 25 in Boston. A longtime volunteer and community ambassador for Susan G. Komen Philadelphia and the American Association for Cancer Research, Stephens-El’s story of family survival was compelling enough for O Magazine to enlist her to participate and share her leadership skills in the Avon39 Walk.
While thrilled at the opportunity to represent O Magazine, Stephens-El was notified of her selection the same month her eldest sister Dorothy tragically succumbed to breast cancer, within days of Stephens-El accepting the team leadership role.
She has recommitted herself to working toward the end of the disease in her sister's honor. Donations can be made to Jeanette's team here: http://www.avonwalk.org/goto/jeanettestephensel
