We are humbled that our products are so effective in significantly reducing the pain and suffering of chemo-induced neuropathy

A Decade of Hosting Hope! The Gloria Gemma Foundation is celebrating ten years of their annual Flames of Hope Weekend - promoting breast cancer awareness and education, while honoring people living with breast cancer.

The Flames of Hope Event has grown into one of the largest awareness events in the Northeast with three inspirational days of education, support, and hope. The pinnacle of the weekend is the moving Illuminations of Live Ceremony. Featuring The State Ballet of Rhode Island, the Illuminations is the moving program that illuminates the RI State House in pink and kicks off the Flames of Hope torch procession.

The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation was established in 2004, in loving memory of Gloria Gemma, two years after this wife and mother-of-nine lost her courageous fight against breast cancer. A devout woman, Gloria instilled in her children strong family values and the importance of helping people in need.

In 2008, the Foundation opened its Resource and Wellness Center, and Gloria’s eldest daughter, Maria Gemma-Corcelli was named the executive director. Through the tireless efforts of Maria and her dedicated staff, including Carol Donnelly, the Foundation has developed and implemented numerous programs and services for people living with breast cancer.

The Foundation has a family atmosphere where hugs are plentiful and emotions are never judged, helping all people who are living with breast cancer, which includes patients, survivors, family members, and friends.

Says Lou Paradise, President and Chief of Research, Topical BioMedics, Inc., Rhinebeck, NY:

“And that is the mission we are all on that starts with strong family values, genuine caring, relationships and people being most important - helping everyone we can, especially those in need. After all, that is truly why we’re all here….”

Says Paradise:

“The Gloria Gemma Foundation is something very dear to us as we are humbled that our products are so effective in significantly reducing the pain and suffering of chemo-induced neuropathy for so many people being treated with chemo therapy. It really touches us deeply when these darling people call us to let us know they are also off pain pills, and how we have had a part in restoring their hope of getting better and knowing they will get there quality of life back. There are no words….”

Topical BioMedics, Inc. also gives thanks to their friends at 4wholeness.com for creating 500 personal gift bags, that include Topricin, for participants. Their efforts to provide complementary and conventional options for those battling breast cancer are greatly admired.
