LORI ALLEN OF "SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA" SHARES HER FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER WITH TLC

"SAY YES TO THE CURE: LORI'S FIGHT" AIRS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26 AT 10PM ET/PT

(New York, NY) - Over the past 32 years, Lori Allen has seen her fair share of brides. As owner of Bridals by Lori in Atlanta and each week on TLC's SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA (http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/say-yes-to-the-dress-atlanta), she's helped and supported thousands of brides as they find their dream dresses for the biggest day of their lives. So many stories have been told on the runway of Lori's shop, but this time around, Lori will tell her own. On April 13th, 2012, Lori received news that would change her life forever as her doctor confirmed she had breast cancer. On Friday, October 26 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC will air the one-hour special SAY YES TO THE CURE: LORI'S FIGHT, a deeply personal chronicle of Lori's struggle, fight and resolve to beat breast cancer. TLC follows Lori on her journey as she leaves the bridal shop she built, into surgery, and through recovery. How will the shop carry on without the heart and soul of Bridals by Lori? Monte, Robin, Flo, and the rest of the staff pull together to keep the shop running, and help brides in her absence. Throughout this hour, viewers will also meet bride DeLese Range from Carollton, Texas, who is looking for a wedding dress to renew her vows. DeLese has been fighting various cancers for nearly 23 of the 25 years she's been married. In this incredibly heartwarming story of overcoming adversity, the Bridals by Lori team finds the strength to help DeLese and her family through one of the most emotional appointments they've ever had, as they wait patiently for Lori's return.

"Naturally I was devastated when I found out that I had breast cancer," said Lori Allen. "Wanting to turn something very negative into something positive - I decided to share my journey with my TLC family and others, in hopes that I can raise breast cancer awareness and perhaps help other women facing breast cancer be less afraid. Breast cancer is a personal journey, and throughout this process some days were easier than others, but I survived with faith, family and friends."

"Anyone who has met Lori or watched her programs is struck by her spirit, warmth and humor," states Amy Winter, GM of TLC. "Lori is a beloved member of our TLC family and our hearts have been with her throughout this difficult journey. She is a remarkable woman, who has handled this with dignity, grace and signature spunk since day one of her diagnosis. This special is about spreading awareness to our viewers, but most importantly it's about sharing Lori's story of strength, hope, and perseverance."

SAY YES TO THE CURE: LORI'S FIGHT is produced by North South Productions for TLC.
