FAB photos: Cancer survivor, Stephanie Benson & circle of friends fight breast cancer with music and dialogue

Stephanie Benson and circle of friends13The Omanye Hall of the Labadi Beach Hotel on Saturday, March 19 dazzled with fabulousness as women, pulled together by singer Stephanie Benson, inspired each other with songs and words of wisdom.

Convener, Stephanie Benson who recently battled with breast cancer called together what she described as her ‘circle of friends’ to share some ideas about how to stand strong as women despite life’s challenges and push on with their dreams.Stephanie Benson and circle of friends14

Sporting a cute pink dress, she revealed how she underwent 28 hours of surgery in three days and urged all the women around to have faith in God and confidence in themselves.Stephanie Benson and circle of friends30

The sweet thing for her was that she was still able to write songs during her down moments in the course of the fight with breast cancer. One of the songs was Dear Lord and she unveiled it at the function. Earlier, she had introduced and performed with some of the young ladies in her music academy.Stephanie Benson and circle of friends34

Juliet Mills-Lutterodt, a good friend of Stephanie’s who has also encountered the breast cancer scare, encouraged women not to allow themselves to be defined by the things they lacked or could not do, rather, they should focus on the positive things about themselves and never lose connection with God.

Most of the pieces of advice and exhortation, however, came through songs and spoken word. The emcee herself is a good singer and everyone admired how she sang the opening prayer for the event.

Sisters, they say, come in different flavours so Yaa Yaa, Sandra Huson, Irene Logan, Becca, Akosua Adjepong and Ofie Kodjoe all came on to sing with their unique touches.Stephanie Benson and circle of friends22

Shouts such as ‘Can I get an Amen’ and ‘Praise you, Lord’ wafted on classic gospel and soulful pieces like Jesus Shall Reign Where’er the Sun, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Amazing Grace and Jesus Loves Me (The Bible Tells Me So) but the real essence of the gathering as emcee Michelle McKinney-Hammond pointed out, was to celebrate sisterhood.Stephanie Benson and circle of friends18
