Nancy C. Speed
Nancy was a model of strength, grace, wisdom, love, and compassion to her family, friends and co-workers. She is remembered for her warm spirit and radiant smile, which signaled the quiet strength she maintained all her life.
Six years ago Nancy C. Speed passed away after a brave yet challenging 10 year battle with breast cancer. Despite the difficulties caused by the disease and extensive treatments, she remained positive and motivated. Instead of bemoaning the situation she harnessed her inner strength and faith in God as she counseled and inspired others that were fighting this and other diseases. She put a great deal of her energy into educating, advocating for, and participating in activities that support the pursuit of a cure for breast cancer.
Her family continues the advocacy work she began. In its third year, Fashion for the Cure is a unique breast cancer awareness event that merges art and fashion to celebrate LIFE—Nancy’s and that of others that are breast cancer patients, survivors or have passed away from the disease. The event will be held at the Arlington Arts Center in Arlington, VA, October 15, 6:30-9:00pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.fashion4cure.com.
