Many of you may have heard of the Breast Cancer Resource Centers Art Bra Austin show, where breast cancer survivors model wearable art to support the BCRC’s mission of helping those in our community with breast cancer. As both an artist and someone who works for an organization that helps support the BCRC, I thought it would be fitting to design a Mamma Jamma Art Bra.
Every bra has a story so I started thinking about what kind of story a Mamma Jamma Art Bra would tell. It’s a story of people helping people for sure. It’s a story about how making the decision to ride can make a positive impact on your life and that of so many others. It’s a story about using a bicycle to start a chain reaction for good. It’s a story about using otherwise unused items to make a difference.
With that in mind, the bra is made of recycled bike parts, gears, chains, & reflectors. It is titled Chain Reaction, inspired by so many brave survivors, determined riders, and selfless volunteers, and is modeled here by the incredible Deborah Carroll, whom you’ll see leading our training rides and Team Survivor’s Mamma Jamma team. Standing next to her is the wonderful Nada Lulic, volunteer extraordinaire and training ride leader. Start a chain reaction in someone’s life and in your own life today and ride with us.
