Shark Limo was proud to provide one of our Stretch Hummer Limos as a surprise birthday event for a great local celebrity Leslie Mouton. We drove to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse downtown for what she said was “Best birthday ever!!”.
Mouton is an anchor for KSAT-TV news, the ABC affiliate in San Antonio, Texas. She has been a broadcast journalist since 1988 and has worked at KSAT since 1999.
In October 2000, at the age of 35, Mouton was discovered with a very aggressive form of breast cancer. She allowed cameras to follow her during the entire treatment process which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
To bring awareness to the disease and offer encouragement and support to other women suffering from it, Mouton anchored a newscast without her wig on in order to reveal the hair loss that had resulted from the treatment process. The resulting attention landed Mouton on Good Morning America, Weekend Today, and Oprah. Newspapers worldwide as well as television programs Inside Edition and Primetime featured stories about her struggle.
Mouton continues to speak publicly about her disease in an effort to educate women about the importance of self-exams and early detection.
The entire team at Shark Limousines is glad she had a great day on her birthday!
