Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta salon owner Lori Allen gets emotional when helping fellow breast-cancer survivor Jennifer Cyr find the perfect wedding gown in the TLC series’ Friday, February 5, episode, as seen in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek.
Cyr tries on a strapless dress but isn’t pleased with the amount of skin it shows.
“I call my breasts my consolation prize for growing through hell and back, so covering up the boobs is like covering up the cancer,” Cyr tells the camera.
Allen, whose own breast cancer battle was featurred in a TLC special in October 2012, understands her client’s mind-set.
“When you get injured in a war, you walk away with medals — that lets the world know you’re a fighter and a survivor — but when you beat breast cancer like Jenny and I have, our medals are right here,” Allen tells the camera, gesturing to her breasts.
“Well, you know, we’re sisters,” she tells Cyr before giving her a hug. “We’ve got a lot in common.”
Watch the emotional clip in the video above.
Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta airs on TLC on Fridays at 9 p.m. EST.
