Dr. Renée Baker Attends Petals of Strength Blooms with Empowerment and Generosity

The inaugural Petals of Strength event was a powerful celebration of motherhood, resilience, and the fight against breast cancer. Among the attendees was Dr. Renée Baker, a breast cancer survivor and the newly appointed Event Chair for the 2024 Tampa Bay MORE THAN PINK Walk with Susan G. Komen. 

Organized by Alicia Henry, the evening honored mothers battling cancer while raising awareness for Journi for Two. Breast cancer remains a leading cause of death among women globally, and events like Petals of Strength play a vital role in supporting research, early detection, and equitable healthcare access. 

The disproportionate impact on Black women, with higher mortality rates, underscores the urgency for advocacy and action – something Dr. Baker is passionate about through her work with Komen. Her leadership of the upcoming Tampa Walk will unite the community to raise crucial funds and awareness. 

The warmth, empowerment, and generosity filling the room were truly inspiring. Attendees united in solidarity, determined to uplift initiatives that champion women’s health and create positive change. For Dr. Baker, it reinforced her commitment to the cause through major events like the MORE THAN PINK Walk. 

Petals of Strength beautifully embodied the strength and perseverance of mothers facing cancer. It was a poignant reminder of the importance of coming together to support one another and create a future where no mother has to endure this battle alone.
