Woonsocket, RI (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
Breast cancer affects nearly one in eight women in the U.S. It is the most common form of cancer in women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). New research and treatment options bring new hope, and a survival rate that is on the rise.
Until there’s a cure, it’s important to nurture and support not only breast cancer patients, but their loved ones - both during the battle, and beyond. This is the motivation behind Rhode Island’s Gloria Gemma Resource Breast Cancer Foundation. As their “Welcome” page states, “We understand that breast cancer is as much an emotional disease as it is a physical one. We also understand that awareness and education promotes early detection, which is the best protection.”
Gloria Gemma gets people thinking, talking and understanding more about breast cancer. They host events such as awareness walks, fashion shows, and their signature “Flames of Hope: A Celebration of Life” gathering. It is the largest breast cancer awareness event in the Northeast. Through exhibits, health screenings, healing arts activities and more, they bring this important issue to light. Perhaps more importantly, the organization shows patients that they’re not alone in the fight.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, therapeutic skincare company Aidance Skincare pledged to donate $1 to Gloria Gemma for each “Like” their recent Facebook post received, up to $500. The response was overwhelmingly positive. With hundreds of “Likes” and “Shares” in support, fans from around the world helped the small business reach its goal.
Nine-year breast cancer survivor Juanie Brown commented to wish others well on their journey. Others shared memories of their mothers, sisters, aunts and friends who battled the disease. One powerful comment came from George Gutierrez, whose loved one has survived breast cancer... twice. “Everybody ‘Like’ this - find a cure so others don’t have to suffer,” he urged.
Aidance thanks the community for rallying toward this $500 donation for local breast cancer patients and their loved ones.
“This is our way of remembering those we have lost, and supporting those who are fighting,” shares Perry Antelman, CEO of Aidance Skincare. “We’re proud to show our support.”
