IS FRANTICALLY GETTING STARTED. WELCOME BACK TO OZARKS FOX AM WE ARE ECSTATIC TO HAVE CARMELITA SITTING NEXT TO US SHE IS A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR SHE WON THREE OLYMPIC MEDALS AND SHE IS THE COACH OF THE MISSOURI GIRLS TRACK TEAM. I AM NOT A SURVIVOR, MY AUNT IS, SHE PASSED AWAY IN 2012 AND SHE IS THE REASON WHY BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO COMPETE ANYMORE I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO HAVE TO PULL YOUR BOOTSTRAPS UP AND GET IT DONE.IT WAS A HARD EXPERIENCE BUT MY VOICE I USE MY VOICE TO KEEP HER NAME ALIVE AND I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THE BREAST CANCER RUN ON THE 19TH AND I’M EXCITED TO BE HERE IN SPRINGFIELD AT MISSOURI STATE. GO BEARS. YOU LET US WEAR YOUR MODELS AROUND OUR NEXT. WHAT AN HONOR. IS THAT POLITE TO ASK TO WEAR IT?I DID NOT KNOW THE RULES. IN THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR OCTOBER IS TOMORROW BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER? I WAS SEE SOUTHWEST MISSOURI GO PINK. THE LARGEST BREAST CANCER WALK IN SOUTHWEST MISSOURI OVER 3000 WALKERS. THEN WE HAVE REAL MEN WEAR PINK WHICH IS COMING UP TOMORROW AS WELL AND JEREMY, YOU ARE ONE OF THE REAL MEN. I AM RAISING MONEY AND AS YOU KNOW I AM WEARING MY PINK RIGHT HERE A DAY EARLY. I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE PRESSURE AND LOSING SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU. WHAT WAS YOUR MENTAL STATE? MY MENTAL STATE WAS I CAN’T FAIL. WHATEVER I DID WAS FOR HER. IF YOU NOTICE IN THE 2012 LONDON GAMES ‘S I COULD NOT CRY AFTER THE HUNDRED OR THE 200 SO MUCH EMOTION CAME AFTER BECAUSE I KNEW I WAS DONE. I KNEW I COULD CRY AND SCREAM AND IT WAS A MOMENT. IT’S YOU COULD SEE ME IN THE MOMENT AND A LOT WAS FOR MY AUNTS, BRENDA WASHINGTON, WE ALL MISS HER AND FOR ANYONE WHO HASN’T GOTTEN CHECKED, PLEASE GO GET CHECKED. DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE. GO NOW. IF SOMETHING DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT, GO. AND SOMETHING DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT GO. BECAUSE AND IF ANYONE WANTS TO DONATE YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE AT THE RACE TO DONATE. EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS. IT ALL ADDS UP. WHEN YOU BUY CANDY AND YOU PULL SOME CHANGE OUT OF THE MIDDLE DRAWER OF YOUR CAR. IT ALL ADDS UP TO A DOLLAR. SOMEONE GIVES 15 AND SOMEONE ELSE GIVES 15 AND SOMEONE GETS 10. DON’T THINK YOUR DOLLAR DOESN’T COUNT BECAUSE IT DOES. TONIGHT I LOVE THAT YOU HARNESS THAT ENERGY FOR YOUR ANSWER YOU ARE AN INCREDIBLE ATHLETE AND I AM SURE AFTER THAT THERE WAS A BIT OF A CRASH. THERE WAS A CRASH AND WHEN I TELL PEOPLE, I’M HUMAN. A LOT OF TIMES THEY SEE OLYMPIANS AND THEY DON’T THINK THAT THEY BREAK DOWN OR THAT THEY CRIED THAT THEY HAVE MOMENTS I PUT ON ONE SHOE AT A TIME JUST LIKE YOU AND THAT WAS A HARD MOMENTS I TELL PEOPLE WHEN YOU HAVE CONTRACTS YOU ARE SMILING AND WAVING THEY DON’T TEACH YOU TO DO ALL THOSE THINGS AND PLAY AROUND LIKE YOU ARE HAPPY. I WAS COMPLETELY TORN BUT I HAD TO DO THIS AND I HAD TO BE THE PERSON THE KIDS NEEDED TO SAY BUT I WAS HURTING INSIDE. IT’S OKAY IF YOU’RE OUT THERE AND YOU ARE HURTING, CARMELITA JENNER WAS DOING THE SAME THING YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A SUPERHERO. IT STARTS TOMORROW AND THERE IS THE WEBSITE ON THE SCREEN. WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK. BE COURAGEOUS.
