In the 1970’s Sue Miller was a young mother, wife, and a professional model when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was a time when few, if any, groups existed to assist with the traumas of breast cancer. Women who suffered with fear about the disease and deformities had no one to turn to about their loneliness and feelings of inferiority and lack of femininity.
Years after her diagnosis, Sue decided to create an opportunity for women who had breast cancer to feel beautiful again by being in a fashion show. In 1981, the Sue Miller – Day of Caring was created as the first breast cancer organization to form within the state of Colorado.
Sue crossed the threshold of her own insecurities-to reach out and help women become strong advocates, acquiring the ability to stand up and stand out as the truly special people they are. What began as a fashion show in small restaurants and hotels progressed to become a well-respected and impactful organization.
After 31 years of success, and serving over 15,500 individuals through our conferences Sue is a role model to us all. She has been honored many times by our community with various awards and distinctions for her continued dedication to serving those affected by breast cancer.
