“Say Yes to the Cure: Lori Allen’s Fight” “Say Yes to the Dress:Atlanta” Host’s Battle with Breast Cancer
“Say Yes to the Dress” fans and brides all love Lori for her honest advice on what wedding dress to wear on their wedding day airs on Friday, October 26 at 10PM ET/PT. Lori is the owner of Bridals by Lori in Atlanta and is seen on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta every week, matching brides with their dream wedding dress. After years of hearing love stories, we will finally hear her courageous story of fighting breast cancer and trusting her staff Monte, Robin, Flo and others run her beloved shop.
“On April 13, 2012, Lori received news that would change her life forever as her doctor confirmed she had breast cancer,” TLC reports. The special episode will also feature brides, like DeLese Range, who also battled with cancer. “Naturally I was devastated when I found out that I had breast cancer,” said Lori Allen. “Wanting to turn something very negative into something positive – I decided to share my journey with my TLC family and others, in hopes that I can raise breast cancer awareness and perhaps help other women facing breast cancer be less afraid. Breast cancer is a personal journey, and throughout this process some days were easier than others, but I survived with faith, family and friends.”
