Komen Tidewater

Do you tutu?? I recently participated in the “Do You tutu?” campain for the Susan G. Komen Tidewater organization. The promotional ad with me (and others) donning a pink tutu was to spread the word and promote the local “Race for the Cure” event in Hampton Roads.

The event took place this past Saturday and I was up before the break of dawn to do live shots for the station and get ready to emcee the event prior to the race. It was kind of fun to wear me news hat (literally) for the day, again! πŸ˜‰

As you can see I wore a pink tutu once again, you know…getting in the spirit and showing my support for breast cancer survivors and the fight to find a cure. King Neptune made the photo too!! My tutu was courtesy of Amp’d Couture.

I worked on my selfies too…here I am with the other media hosts of the event… Face of Fox 43, Kevin Kennedy, Alabama Radio and Dominique Da Diva.

Here’s one more snap, me with the parade of survivors, the true VIPs of the day!

Buy My BRA!!!!

***UPDATE*** 04.07.12: The auction has begun…go here to bid now >> www.ebay.com/mzemmerssportsbraauction :: Aubrey Aquino – Autographed Sports Bra http://r.ebay.com/LGkL9X

I recently donated one of my old Oakland Raiderettes sports bras to a very worthy cause…the MZ & Emmers Sports Bra Auction for Breast Cancer Awareness.

“MZ & Emmers” was formed through a friendship between Women’s Professional Soccer star McCall Zerboni (MZ), and now five-year-old Emma Bayer (Emmers) and her parents. We are dedicated to raising awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer, through the empowerment of women’s athletics.

My bra goes up for auction along with several other sports bras from women all across the world of sports beginning April 7, 2012 – I believe it’ll be on ebay. I was able to get involved after the organizer got in touch with Going Pro Entertainment founder and current Ms. United States, Laura Eilers. She’s a former Kansas City Chiefs and Saint Louis Rams Cheerleader.

Laura put the word out for us to send in a piece from our pro cheer days, and I did not hesitate to donate for such a worthy cause!! πŸ™‚ You can view all the “bras” here —> http://www.facebook.com/MZEmmers

And — just because, here’s a picture of me with some of my fellow Going Pro Consultants/NFL Cheer alumni!


Breast Cancer Awareness

Today is the last day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I wanted to post a couple informative segments I did for “Here’s to Your Health.” I’m the Senior Field Correspondent (fancy title) for the show, and I travel across the country to host and produce segments on health-related topics. The show airs on TLC on select Saturday mornings.

The first segment is about Digital Mammograms and how they are helping the fight against breast cancer. Digital Imaging allows the experts to have clearer pictures and more immediate results, so patients don’t have to wait as long to know what’s going on…early detection is SO important to help cure the cancer!

The second (breast cancer) piece I field produced/hosted highights the connection between breast cancer and bone loss. Many women don’t realize how the cancer can affect their bones, and in this piece… the patient didn’t even realize she had breast cancer until she began to have bone loss issues in her eye!
