Sue Rothstein, Co-Chair of the Hadassah Atlanta Breast Strokes event.

NBC affiliate channel 11, Alive’s Atlanta & Co interviewed Sue Rothstein, Co-Chair of the Hadassah Atlanta Breast Strokes event, and Alana and Rochelle Schube, Breast Strokes honorees. Family and breast cancer survivors volunteered to be models and have their torsos painted from the neck to naval by local artists. The work of art was then photographed and put on canvas. The Breast Strokes event will feature a gala and auction where individuals can purchase the canvas photographs, raising awareness for genetic breast cancer.
