MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Dr. Rixie Thompson is a two-time breast cancer survivor, who's been cancer-free for more than 35 years.
The 'Give Cancer the Boot' parade is on October 26th in Ruston starting at 9 am. (KNOE) -
After her battle with cancer, she decided to open up her own group 'Coaching in Pink Shoes Ministry' geared toward helping people after they beat cancer.
"Each year, it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and more than 40,500 will die," says Dr. Thompson.
That number is why she says it's so important to raise awareness.
"I have concluded that it's high time to make a move and sound the alarm about breast cancer," says Thompson.
She also started the More Than Conquerors Breast Cancer Support Group and the Give Cancer the Boot Parade over in Ruston. She encourages everyone to participate in the parade and bring your best boots and cowgirl hats.
"I have supported hundreds of Breast Cancer survivors by coaching them back into the stream of life; I reveal God's Game Plans for a victorious life beyond breast cancer," says Thompson.
The parade is October 26th at 9 a.m., and you need to reserve your spot in the parade by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is October 18th.
"People are looking for answers to their questions concerning breast cancer," says Dr. Thompson. "Based on my 35 years of survivorship skills, successfully having a child after breast cancer, and my 15 years of experience working with the American Cancer Society Reach to Recovery Program, I have those answers!"
Dr. Thompson says, "additional services provided by Coaching in Pink Shoes Ministry are: Consulting Services, Professional Speaking, Private and group Prayer, Breast Health Education Seminars, Awareness Events, and Empowerment Sessions. “Prayer in Pajamas” is another phase of this ministry that connects with other survivors and others across the world. Group prayer sessions are held every Wednesday at 6:00 AM via toll-free conference calls."
