In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pure-Ecommerce.com plans to give a breast cancer survivor the opportunity to own their own turnkey internet business. Founder and CEO Jennifer Varner, who is a three-year breast cancer survivor, “hopes to show others fighting this disease that life does go on after cancer and great things can be in store for them!"
Now through October 31, 2012, Pure-Ecommerce.com will hold its Second Annual Survive & Thrive Business Giveaway. Breast cancer survivors are invited to enter the giveaway for a chance to win http://www.stylishteeshirts.com, one of Varner's turnkey ecommerce business-in-a-box solutions plus 40 hours of full consulting and mentoring.

The winner will be notified and will also be listed on http://www.pure-ecommerce.com, http://www.JenniferVarner.com, and Pure-Ecommerce's Facebook page.
Surviving and thriving is something Varner knows a great deal about. Her husband, Jeff, was diagnosed with cancer just three weeks after their wedding. At only 29 years old, they were told by the doctors that Jeff had only a slim chance at life and that they would never have children. The Varners were devastated...but also determined. Miraculously while Jeff was undergoing treatment, Jennifer discovered she was pregnant. The young couple beat the cancer and soon thereafter welcomed their first child.
Three years ago, Varner found out she herself had invasive breast cancer after celebrating the 10th year of her husband being free from colon cancer. At the time she was three months pregnant and her greatest fear was for the health of her unborn child. She chose to fight the cancer. This meant undergoing a mastectomy and enduring chemotherapy treatments all while being pregnant. Her husband Jeff became a role model and her unborn child provided her the strength to withstand the arduous treatments. Fortunately, the baby was born healthy, and they are all grateful to be alive. The Varner's named their son Kilian which means small and mighty.
Jennifer feels so lucky and wants to give back as much as she can. After going through breast cancer, she started a non-profit organization called Kilian's Kids, named after her son Kilian who survived chemotherapy along with her. That organization gives laptops and tablets to kids going through cancer.
"Today my husband is cancer free! Today I am cancer free! Most importantly, my baby, Kilian, is perfect! He is a survivor too; he took that long hard journey with me. Through these events I have gained so much knowledge, wisdom and strength - more than I ever had, and more then I knew I could gain in a lifetime. I live every moment, every day like it's my last. But I know it's not, I plan on having an amazing future. I have overcome and thrived.”
Now it's Varner’s desire through the 2nd Annual Survive and Thrive Business Giveaway to give back to another breast cancer survivor who has overcome. “I want to empower a woman and give her hope as she moves on and recovers from this life changing disease. Most of all I want to give her the vision to look towards to a future that can be bright and full of possibilities. “
