If you were battling stage 4 breast cancer, would you enter the Miss All-Star United States Pageant? That’s exactly what Sarah White, a special education teacher from West Virginia, did. However, she didn’t just enter, she won.
White not only did this to boost her self-esteem during a rough patch in her life, but she did this for her children and to help others.
Hospitals, doctors and treatments are all scary and not fun. When your body is battling something so strong, I’m sure it’s difficult to stay confident and happy. Most of all, I think it’s hard for a lot of people who are sick to feel beautiful.
White volunteers for the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good Feel Better” program. The beauty queen shows other cancer patients how to get brows that are on fleek and how to tie a cute scarf. It may sound simple, but makeup and fashion can really boost a person’s mood and spirit.
It shouldn’t take a scary diagnosis to push anyone to chase their dreams, however White chased hers and got it. The best part was that she helped others (and herself) along the way.
