BENEFITING: AVON PRODUCTS FOUNDATION INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2013
The AVON Foundation is an amazing organization! They provide grant to breast cancer organizations to support five areas of the breast cancer cause: awareness and education; screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research. Most importantly, support for the medically underserved is one of their key priorities.
1 in 8 women in the US have breast cancer, but every year more people are surviving because of the focus on awareness and education. Support for the medically underserved is also a large part of increasing the survival rate. That is why AVON is my chosen charity - they don't just educate and support, they empower!
