Ex Fabula: Breast Cancer Awareness

Art Montes


Haunted houses, pumpkin carving and pink ribbons. This week, in honor of October and breast cancer awareness month, Ex Fabulawants to tip our hat to all of those who have been touched by breast cancer by featuring two of our favorite stories about “the girls.”

Our first story was told during last April’s Fool Proofshow. The Dynamic Duo of Kerri Grote and Amy Wilbourne shared a hilarious tale about a group outing, bra shopping and an uncomfortably familiar sale manager, leaving us with a whole new definition of threesome.

Our second story, one that is dear to all who were in the audience, takes us back to our very first Story Slam. Back to the Beginnings, Leslie Biernat shared her inspiring story of a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and triumph.

This week, we’re also celebrating our first Story Slam of Season 6 and our return to The Times Cinema for our Crossing Over themed event. If you didn’t get to see our storytellers in action, visit ExFabula.comfor a recap of all the fun. Make sure you tune into WUWM@Nite next Wednesday, 10/29, for a hilarious story of a Halloween costume gone wrong and mark your calendars for our November 13 My Nemesis story slam at Hot Water Warehouse.
