Second-annual “BoobieQue” cancer fundraiser to take place Oct. 2

Newly formed nonprofit organization, Fighting Right, will host its second annual BoobieQue fundraiser at Rahr & Sons Brewing Company from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29.

Emily McLaughlin of West Magnolia Plastic Surgery is the founder of the nonprofit, which was formed from the $85,000 raised at last year’s BoobieQue event. BoobieQue works to raise funds for distribution between four local non-profit organizations focused on cancer care.

According to a news release, after discovering she had breast cancer in May of last year and undergoing a double mastectomy with reconstruction, McLaughlin had the desire to give back to her community.

She found that as a plastic surgeon in the business of performing breast reconstruction, finding herself on the other side of the table motivated her to reach out and do more.
