G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout
her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent
her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling
breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern
for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by
Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference,
Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her
power to end breast cancer forever.
That promise is now Susan G.
Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement,
having invested nearly $1.5 billion since inception in 1982. As the
world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and
activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure
quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to
events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous
contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have
become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight
against breast cancer in the world.
ABOUT TATIANA FONTES:
most 12 year-old girls would tell you their favorite band is Hannah
Montana, but if you asked Tatiana Fontes at that same age, she would've
said Duran Duran. However this is not surprising considering she's been a
part of the music scene her entire life.
Born and raised in
Florianopolis, Brazil, where her father was a nightclub owner and her
brothers were professional DJs, it's no wonder she took up a serious
passion for music so early on in life. 'I've been into it as long as I
can remember, after school I would be in the DJ booth helping my
brothers, learning the ropes.' At the age of five she was taking music
and ballet lessons, writing, directing, and starring in her own theater
productions for friends and family. She even performed in a popular
singing/dancing group called Paquitas de Floripa, which traveled the
state performing at local events and venues.
Although Tatiana had
an obvious affinity for music early on, her career took a different
direction at the age of 15 when she began receiving offers for modeling
gigs in her hometown. A year later she was invited to participate in a
contest sponsored by Elite Models known as Look of the Year. Even though
modeling wasn’t her biggest passion, she liked the opportunities it
offered – experiencing life beyond Florianopolis. This contest gave her
just that, when it scored her a modeling contract in Japan.
went on to be an international model doing major campaigns,
commercials, editorials, fashion shows, and billboards in Paris, Milan,
Switzerland, Germany, Brazil, and more. In 1999, she was cast as a model
in the Oliver Stone film Any Given Sunday. In 2001, acting brought her
to the Los Angeles, where she would go on to study the craft with top
veterans of the biz. The hard work paid off and Tatiana went on to book
dozens of commercials, such as the 2005 Pepsi campaign she did with Eva
Longoria. She scored a dramatic role in the Columbia Pictures feature
film, Sharkskin 6, and a part in the hit show Las Vegas, among others
success in her new home of Los Angeles, one would think her life was
complete. But Tatiana was itching to fill a major void in her life… and
that was music. It was always her true passion and she knew she had to
return to it. Fortunately, it didn’t take long for people to take
notice of her talent, landing her DJ gigs at the hottest clubs and
parties around the world. Her style is a fusion of the 80’s and rock she
grew up with, along with the house and electronic music from her days
in Europe working as a model."
