October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On the first day of this month, our beloved sister and Majic 102.1 personality Kandi Eastman of Houston announced on her show that she has started a bout with Breast Cancer.
“Today, I come as one, but I stand for 10,000 Breast Cancer survivors, encouraging our sisters to be encouraged. So, let’s make history together! Schedule your mammogram today; keep your appointment if you already have one. And tomorrow, I’ve already claimed it – this cancer will be history," she said on Oct. 1st.
“I want to thank my husband, my sons, my mother, my family, my extended family and friends, let’s remain powerful in our prayers, as we support our cancer survivors by wearing pink. I will win this battle.”
"Only Kandi Eastman would be strong enough to share her personal health issue. The sharing of her cancer diagnosis will prayerfully inspire others to realize the importance of early detection and screening. The Radio One family has huddled around her, and we look forward to her radio family joining us in prayers for her and her family," Radio One VP/GM Doug Abernethy said in a press release.
Radio One Operating Manager Terri Thomas said,"Kandi is the 'First Lady' of MAJIC 102.1 and over the past 19 years has been a shining star of strength for our staff and community. It is our time to give back to Kandi and be strong for her as she recovers. Kandi is a fighter, and we will fight with her."
Prayers up for Kandi Eastman! We love and appreciate you sister. And peace and blessings to all survivors of breast cancer.
