Last night, I had a dream that was both the BEST dream ever and the WORST dream ever. I dreamed that my oncologist told me that it was all a big mistake. That I didn’t have cancer. That I wasn’t living with terminal cancer. That was the BEST part. Then I woke up and realized that it was only a dream. That was the WORST part. I’m sure the dream stemmed from anxiety caused by meeting with my doctor this week and hoping that he pronounces me STILL cancer free. But, whether he does or not, I have work to do. I have to warn women about this horrible thing-this Ovarian Cancer. I have to tell them about the silent symptoms and urge them to trust their own knowledge of their bodies.
This mission is one of the most important things in my life right now. Because of this, I’ve sought out organizations and companies that I can partner with to bring about awareness, as well as funding. One such company is Laura Mercier Cosmetics. Laura Mercier has witnessed this battle up close–one of her dear friends has been fighting for years. The President and CEO of the parent company to Laura Mercier, Claudia Poccia lost a sister to this nasty, vile disease. Together they formed the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. In addition to other work, the Fund hosts Shop for a Cause–products whose entire profit goes to the fund. There is a lip gloss, a face powder, and the Bonne Mine. Here are both women talking about the reasons they are committed to this disease.
I’m partnering with Laura Mercier to both bring awareness while raising some much needed dollars. Next Tuesday, at Bloomingdale’s in Aventura Mall, I’m hosting #JewelsHEALTHYGlow. It’s a master class where women will learn to use the Bonne Mine palette, a universal palette that can be used for bronzing, cheek color, and glow. Bonne Mine means “Healthy Glow” and it’s suitable for ANY complexion.
Because I want EVERYONE to be included, I’m hosting the same event TWICE in one day–at NOON and again at 7pm. The price of admission? JUST BUY ONE OF THE PRODUCTS. I’m not making a dime in this deal, I just want you to hear my story, know and learn the symptoms, and help me rid the world of this disease.
Please help me. Call Bloomingdale’s at 305-792-1223 to reserve your spot. Even if you’re not in the area, please consider buying one of the products online. Or simply tweet out the hashtag–I will be FOREVER grateful. Thank you!
