The Aveda Central and West teams have partnered this year to raise money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation founded by the late Evelyn Lauder. Like Evelyn we hope to find a cure. The advancements in treatments are hopeful and continuous, and more funding is needed to find a cure! Last year as Lisa's Angels we raised money and awareness in honor of our team member and friend, Lisa, who represents the 1 in 8 of us who has battled and survived breast cancer. Today, we are happy to say she is fast approaching 5 years cancer free!
Lisa's story is too familiar; She was diagnosed at 38 years old, had a beautiful family with two young children, no family history of breast cancer, and did not carry the BC gene. She led a clean lifestyle, ate healthy, exercised, and lead a busy, productive life as a control freak with a schedule to keep! Sound like anyone you know?
1 in 3 of us knows someone affected by this disease. It touches us all personally and nothing can prepare you for this diagnosis as it often shows up unannounced, turning your world turned up-side-down and inside out! This year our efforts are magnified as we have learned our fearless-strong leader and Chief Energy Officer, Debra Neill Baker, now faces this battle. As “Debra’s Angels” we raise awareness and money in her honor and as part of her ARMY, providing hope for THE CURE, prayers and support to VICTORY!
Help us raise a minimum of $6,000 by November 1st and find a cure for Breast Cancer! Donate TODAY!
