Tiffany Riddick of Powells Point, North Carolina, works as a nurse and is trained in how to take care of others. She wants to extend that care to breast cancer survivors by sharing her story through the 2015 Beyond Boobs! calendar.
Fellow Boobers! encouraged Tiffany, 43, to submit a modeling application but she wasn’t sure. One night she couldn’t sleep and when she checked her e-mail she saw a message from Beyond Boobs! requesting applications for models. She applied that night and could not believe it when she was chosen.
Tiffany feels the calendar represents strength, courage, and the determination to survive breast cancer and to also survive whatever life brings our way. Her son, Ethan, passed away in 2007. She knew that if she could get through the pain of losing him that she could win her battle with cancer, too.
“I am very humble,” Tiffany said. “Being in front of the camera was a big deal to me and a life-changing experience. I was so nervous about doing well at the photo shoot that I only remember one of the poses that I did.”
The attack of nerves was worth it for Tiffany, though. “It was a great honor to be chosen as a calendar model,” she said. “If sharing my life story and my strength can help others and make it easier for them then it was all worth it.”
