At the beginning of October, Ellen Tailor of HOT-FM's "Todd Chance Radio Show" embarked on an ambitious fundraiser to help local survivors of breast cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with the disease just over a year ago. After undergoing treatment, she is now a survivor. Tailor decided to challenge listeners, if they could raise $10,000 to help other survivors, she would "bare it all" and pose in the buff for an art class at Kendall College. "She and other breast cancer patients are poked and prodded and feel so vulnerable when they are being put out there, that me doing this art class is nothing compared to what they go through," said Tailor. Just one month later, listeners had held up their end of the bargain, and $11,700 was donated to the Compassionate Cancer Care Center at Metro Health Village... HOT-FM's Ellen Tailor 'Bares It All' to help breast cancer survivors (Mon, 11/16)
