Evans, GA, June 28, 2016-Fans flooded into Evans High School gymnasium with their pink shirts and pink Georgia Soul paraphernalia this past Sunday for the Georgia Soul's Breast Cancer Awareness Day game.

The team circled to the court against the Carolina Lady Rush with their special pink uniforms, sponsored by Dr. Tyjuan Williams and One Smile Away Dentistry. The ladies of the Georgia Soul ended the first half with a 3-point lead. Owner Ernesia Wright, began the special Breast Cancer Awareness half-time tribute to survivors, which included Erika Stokes (Evans, GA native) former Lakeside athlete and leading scorer, who won her battle against Breast Cancer.
After playing for South Carolina State University and graduating with honors, Ms. Erika Stokes traveled to play semi-professional basketball, but began to get home sick. At the age of 25, she saw a need to give back to the community and began the first women's semi-professional basketball team in Augusta, GA known as the Lady Blaze. Georgia Soul owner, Ernesia Wright was a member on the team and became the first player to receive a contract to play professionally overseas.

At the age of 31, Ms. Stokes found a lump in one of her breast while conducting a self-examination. The doctors confirmed her fear and she given a diagnosis of an aggressive stage 2-A Hormone Positive Breast Cancer in March of 2012. There were rounds of surgery and chemotherapy. She is very thankful to still be alive today. 'I had to put aside negative thoughts and trust the path that God placed before me. I am blessed and thankful to be alive today and four (4) years cancer free!' said breast cancer survivor Erika Stokes. The presentation ended with the ladies of the Georgia Soul giving special gifts to Ms. Stokes and other breast cancer survivors from the audience, to include male survivor, Mr. Cecil Herrin.

The pink power-packed game ended with Carolina Lady Rush on top 88-76. The Georgia Soul may have lost the battle against the Lady Rush but were victorious in being graced with survivors for the breast cancer awareness day. The Georgia Soul still continues to soar through their first season with a 5-0 record in their region and a 6-3 record overall in the Women's Blue Chip Basketball League.
