LaCrecia Day was diagnosed with stage one, grade three triple negative breast cancer in October 2021. She got the news when she was in the car driving to Atlanta. With an hour left in her drive, LaCrecia says she turned on gospel music to get her to her destination. Since her diagnosis, she's undergone chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Her treatments have not always been as successful as her medical teams had hoped but LaCrecia says she's not expecting an overnight cure to breast cancer. "There's always some kind of setback," says LaCrecia. "But I don't see it as a setback because I'm healing." LaCrecia is active in Forge's Young Breast Cancer Support Group and is the financial and programs director at IMPACT Family Counseling.

Ericka Murdock is a modern messenger for the culture. It all started when Ericka’s or “E. Louise” passion for fashion was fully ignited after being charged by family and friends to style and design custom pieces for their wardrobe. As a result, her blog “ShapElyLouise”, was born and a community that embraced and empowered women with curves all over the world was forged. The quadruple threat, writer, stylist, designer and body positive advocate, is a passionate artisan who strives to evoke emotions and inspire people through her artistic mediums. The unapologetic, self-proclaimed “stylist with designer tendencies," is widely regarded for her signature aesthetic and fresh point of view, continuing to boldly redefine vintage, yet modern, style and merging comfort, functionality and fashion. A native of Montgomery, Ericka has been dressing clients who turn to her for show-stopping, magnificent creations for over 10 years. An encourager at heart, Ericka’s unique experiences have helped to mold her into the radical, forward-thinking creative and social advocate she is today. To her, every day — every minute, is an opportunity to teach women how to celebrate their bodies, regardless of size, and to live a life that’s fused with color, culture and confidence without compromise.
