3rd Annual Black Little Dress Soirée-Prostate Cancer

The 3rd Annual Little Black Dress-All Black Soirée for Prostate Cancer was held on November 21st. It took place at Suite Lounge. I must say Suite Lounge supports a lot of events and foundations and I love it. I love seeing when we can come out and support each other for a great cause.

Chandon Carter the coordinator of the 3rd Annual event, step dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer so this was close to home for him. I learned so much about prostate cancer this night.

Before I get into that. I want to say this was a great event to attend and network. There were a lot of entrepreneurs that night. From real estate, therapist, event planners, authors and more.

Now back to the event and what it is about. We have all heard of prostate cancer and know what it is. Some of us might know it as cancer that is diagnosed in men. But, the text book meaning A cancer in a man’s prostate, a small walnut-shaped gland that produces seminal fluid.

As I sat there and listened to Chadon talk about his step dad being diagnosed with prostate cancer, and how many men are afraid to get checked 1. because they do not want to know 2. because they do not like the exam. But just like women need to get their breast checked, men need to get checked as well. Prostate Cancer is found in the ages 41 and up. Just because you are under the age of 41 doesnt mean you shouldn’t get checked. Accoridng to zocdoc.com African American men should get a checkup starting at the age of 40.

I was most touched by Larry Love (host and radio personality) story who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Larry Love is a prostate cancer survivor. Larry provided the guest of the night with the symptoms of prostate cancer.  I remember him saying frequently using the bathroom , pain in the leg and more. For refrence and to learn more visit http://www.webmd.com/prostate-cancer/guide/prostate-cancer-symptoms-types

Mothers, Wives,Daughters, Sons, Brothers….take your loved ones to be checked. You are never too young to be checked. If caught early the survival rate is higher.

If you missed the 3rd Annual. DO NOT MISS THe 4TH ANNUAL BLACK LITTLE DRESS SOIRÈE-PROSTATE CANCER

Loose Ends Performs Live

The legendary group Loose Ends originally from the U.K just closed their mini tour out in Richmond Virginia.

Jane Eugene the lead singer of dance floor classics such as “Slow Down”, “Hangin on a string” & “Watchin you” sat down with Six Twelve Magazine.

Loose Ends was the first U.K group to go #1 in the U.S on the R & B charts. 31 years later both loyal and new fans continue to be moved by their music.

New music can be expected from the group Loose Ends in 2016. When asked which Producers would you like to collaborate with? Jane quickly replied “Missy Elliott”!

We anxiously await to see what the future holds for Loose Ends as they don’t show any signs of slowing down.
