October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and while many make donations and raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer, the month-long period of awareness is coming to an end. Before it does come to an end, it would seem that Kodak Black is interested in making quite the statement to show his support of the cause.
The Trump pardoned rapper made his donations in Northeast Miami-Dade, he meeting with a group of 20 women or so, in conjunction with 99JAMZ radio host Supa Cindy. He wanted to point a finger of recognition to their fight and determination to make a difference, all the while battling the disease.
Kodak Black spoke to WPLG local news Miami where he discussed this good deed.
“I know they’ll appreciate it. Show these women they’re queens, they’re strong, they’re going to get through it. Pray with them, we’re going to get through it together.”
Breast Cancer Awareness has been around since 1985. It was a partnership of The American Cancer Society and Imperial Chemical Industries (pharmaceutical division). Betty Ford, who survived the disease at that time, was a big part in kicking off the partnership. At the time it was a week-long event.
“It means a lot to me,” one breast cancer fighter in attendance said. “It makes me continue to fight. It encourages me to go through this journey, continue through this journey and it encourages me to be a witness to other people that we all can survive.”
Supa Cindy added on Instagram, “Today was such a BLESSING!! Kodak’s heart is SO HUGE and to help women who are such fighters felt INCREDIBLE.”
There is an unfortunately reported down side to the good portion of this reporting however, as Kodak Black unfortunately failed some drug tests recently, in relation to an ongoing and highly publicized federal gun charge against him.
