Chino, California (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Sylvia Favela, the owner of the new Chino Hills Pilates Studio, hasn’t had to battle breast cancer. But she does know what it’s like to fight back to good health. Running injuries, coupled with injuries she received in a serious auto accident, left her afraid that she would never be active again. Through perseverance, determination and sheer stubbornness, she not only recovered but started a new career as a Pilates instructor. Now she wants to use the grand opening of Chino Hills Pilates to raise money for local women battling breast cancer.
“October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” says Favela, “and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our grand opening than by helping local women. That’s what my business is all about – helping women achieve great health – so I think holding this fundraiser is extremely appropriate.”
The fundraiser is being held Saturday, October 27, from 9am to 11am at the studio. Chino Hills Pilates is located at 3833 Schaefer Ave, Suite N, Chino, CA 91709. During the fundraiser, 20 minute Pilates sessions will be available for a $5 donation. There will also be raffles for gift baskets, Chino Hills Pilates special memberships, and many other great prizes. Local salons, Grand Ave Salon, Creme Colour Lounge, and The Den have also donated services. Spray tan services are also being donated from Bronze Babe.
All proceeds will go to The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center in Chino Hills. Among other services, the center provides Chino Hills women with transportation to treatment appointments, wigs for women undergoing chemotherapy and camisoles for women who have had breast surgery.
Many women fighting breast cancer in Chino Hills have limited resources and enormous medical expenses. The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center tries to help local women to afford what they need, but also stands ready with caring, time, and attention.
“The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center is such an important part of the Chino Hills community,” says Favela. “They nurture, support, and care for the whole woman and they help women fighting breast cancer with things that might otherwise cost too much money for them to get on their own.”
Favela says that she’s proud to be supporting the center and local breast cancer patients, especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“I’ve read several reports that say one out of four women will be diagnosed with breast cancer,” she says. “That means that out of me, my best friend, my sister and my mother, one of us is probably going to have to deal with breast cancer. I pray that we won’t, but if we do, I want organizations like the Lewis Center to be there.”
The fundraiser is open to anyone who would like to attend and guests are welcome to arrive any time between 9am and 11am, though space for the Pilates sessions is limited so guests are encouraged to come early.
