Following her win, she took the nation by storm with young women everywhere wanting her iconic “bob” hairstyle. Today, Dorothy does a number of speaking engagements talking about not only depression but breast cancer which she beat, woman’s issues and motivational speaking so you might want to think about her for these kind of things. She has been doing a lot of press for the Breast Cancer Index which is a new way to determine you chance of breast cancer returning.
