Forget the debates. The “bathing suit” contests. The pie dinners. I just wish that we could all get out the vote for her.
No. I’m not talking about Hillary. I’m talking about Tara Tate, the newly crowned, Mrs. Indiana, who is going for the national crown of Mrs. America.
Tara is OUR HEROINE — she’s a hero of all of us girlfriends because she lives with Lupus, has been very, very sick with Lupus, and it’s not keeping her down. According to this article in the Terre Haute News, “While Tara is maintaining a graceful battle with Lupus, Tate is also helping others”. Tara, a former Ms. Indiana, helps other girls get into pageants and now she’s got a crown herself.
She’s been on steroids (and we know what that does to a pretty face!), suffers from severe fatigue and huge weight fluctuations. But it doesn’t stop her. And, even better, she’s not hiding this disease – she’s wearing it, with her crown.
I wish we could vote…
