Sharing positivity on our TL: The young, ambitious, and beautiful model Maddy participated in the @becauseofthem Campaign by portraying news anchor Robin Roberts in a recent photoshoot. Robin Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and underwent several chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Maddy was especially inspired by Roberts because of her own personal battle with cancer. Today in 2014, we are happy to say that both Robin Roberts and Maddy are Cancer Free and in good health!
