Des Peres (KSDK)--Tens of thousands will head downtown on June 23 for the Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure.
On Saturday, one group kicked off the cause a little early. They hosted a party for their friend, Tara Boland. The joy of discovering she was pregnant was overshadowed by the discovery of breast cancer, followed by a mastectomy just two weeks ago.
So a group of women who call themselves the "Ta Ta Sisterhood" held an event to raise awareness for pregnant women with breast cancer. They support Hope for 2, an organization for pregnant moms with breast cancer.
