Mother Jefferson has been a cheerleader for Divas For A Cure since our inception in 2005. During our very first Divas For A Cure Cross-Country Breast Cancer Motorcycle Ride, we made a pit stop in Tulsa, OK. We were greeted by Mother Jefferson and a host of family and friends. It had been a very long, hot, exhausting and hard ride. We were all just about sick of each other by the time we reached Tulsa.  Mother Jefferson gave us all a big hug. I told her, “Aj thinks she’s the boss of me.”  Mother Jefferson smiled and said, “Yes, I heard you need one!  Now, get over here with the rest of the family!” I politely replied, “Yes, Ma’am!”
