WE ARE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT EDIE FALCO AND SARRAH STRIMMEL BENTLEY WILL BE OUR SPEAKERS AT THE PINK AID LUNCHEON & FASHION SHOW ON OCT. 13TH!
Edie Falco is best known for her roles as Diane Whittlesey on the HBO series Oz, Carmela Soprano on The Sopranos, and the title role of Showtime’s Nurse Jackie.
For her television work she has received multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG Awards, as well as the American Film Institute’s Award for Female Television Actor of the Year. Broadway credits include the Tony Award-winning play Sideman, Frankie and Johnny in The Clarie De Lune, ‘Night Mother, And The House of Blue Leaves, for which she received a Tony Award Nomination.
Off-Broadway she has appeared in The Madrid, This Wide Night, The True, and Morning Sun. Her work in feature film includes Cost of Living (American Film Institute’s Best Actress Award), Laws of Gravity (Independent Spirit Award nomination), Sunshine State, Landline, Hurricane, The Funeral, The Addiction, Freedomland, The Land of Steady Habits, Judy Berlin, and the forthcoming Avatar sequels.
Sarrah is the founder of Damn Good Yoga, co-founder of A Damn Good Life, a former Broadway showgirl, and a fearless breast cancer survivor.
She performed in 7 Broadway shows spanning a 15 year career. Her yoga has been described as “like seeing my therapist, a revival meeting, and a butt-kicking workout, all wrapped together in one yoga class.” She has taught around the world for clients including Goldman Sachs, Amazon and Google.
She was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma on 9/1/20, finishing her active treatment on 4/21/21 after a double mastectomy, two rounds of IVF, 8 rounds of chemotherapy, and 28 rounds of radiation. She and her new husband and love of her life (he put a ring on it while she was bald during chemo) have one little baby boy embryo to begin their surrogacy journey with, and feel so fortunate to do so! They are currently being matched with the perfect woman to bring him into the world.
Her foundation, A Damn Good Life, helps breast cancer survivors in need afford full surrogacy journeys. She continues to chronicle her experience on Instagram @damngoodyoga to raise awareness for other young women and has been the face of Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaigns for Ford, ABC News and others.
Her motto is, “when walking down a road you didn’t expect to be on, you have two choices. To walk down it in fear, downtrodden and heavy, or to strut down it, looking around at all the joy amongst the unknown. Choose the latter!
