    Another cause that The Ultimate Patti LaBelle fights for, supports research and literally lost all 3 of her sisters to CANCER it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so here is Patti and the story about Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy in which she was a co-star but also A SUPPORTER.

    Shortly after graduating from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, Geralyn Lucas lands her dream job working for 20/20. Lucas is then diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27 and has a dilemma - whether to have a lumpectomy or the potentially safer mastectomy. After consulting several doctors (including her husband) and researching the operations she decides to undergo a mastectomy. Her subsequent chemotherapy treatment leads to tensions within her marriage but the couple stays together. She also has breast reconstruction. The final shot is of Geralyn cradling her child, something she feared she would be unable to do. Geralyn meets several "angels" in the story, people who have been in similar positions to her and are able to dispense good advice.

    The title refers to her belief that only confident women wear red lipstick.
