In memory of Sharon Diamond Tyson

By Ragan Pruitt White

Sharon and I have been friends for over 20 years.  In January 2018, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  After a year or so of treatment and surgeries, she WON.  She beat breast cancer. At the time, I was involved with Relay for Life and nominated her to share her story at the Making Strides walk for Breast Cancer in Baton Rouge.  She had such a positive attitude about the whole ordeal that I asked her to be honorary chair for our local Relay for Life.  She rocked it!  Fast forward to fall of 2020.  Sharon was asked to be a model in the Bust Breast Cancer event hosted by Woman’s Hospital.  She was so excited and nervous all at the same time.  She asked if I would design and make her ensemble.  Of course, I said yes!  We discussed the theme and design and colors and everything else.  She purchased a bra and travel charms.  She also talked about wings to cover her back.  I told her if she is not an angel or butterfly she didn’t need wings.  And with that infectious laugh, she said, “Girl, you’re right”.  Well Sharon, you got your angel wings.  Sharon was called to heaven August 12, 2021.  While she wasn’t able to participate as originally planned, I was able to carry out her vision and be a Bra Partner in the Bust Breast Cancer Bust Out in her memory.  Her travel inspired bra captures her larger than life personality, love of travel, and all things fun!  Please consider donating and voting for Sharon’s bra and let’s all remember her for the kind, big hearted, fun loving soul that she was.

The bra will be on display at the Clubhouse Bistro located at the Island Country Club in Plaquemine

BUST Breast Cancer was created to provide essential support for Woman’s Hospital's breast cancer outreach, including Woman’s two mammography coaches. As the region’s leader in comprehensive breast care, Woman’s commits its skills and resources aiding women in their fight against breast cancer.

BUST Breast Cancer has added a virtual campaign, BUST OUT. Baton Rouge, we want you to BUST Out in Pink!  You can make a difference and provide life-saving screening mammograms to women in 33 parishes around the state. Funding the coaches is now even more important as women have missed their annual mammogram appointments in 2020.  We need to reach as many women as possible to assist in early detection of breast cancer.

The campaign will run from September 24-October 31, 2021.  We have local restaurants, businesses, boutiques, and artists that will design a bra to be displayed at their business in support of Woman’s.

Show your support by voting for your favorite bra, share Woman’s/businesses’ posts, ask friends and family to vote for their favorite, and donate to help save lives.
