Over the past several years, I've become increasingly aware of just what devastating effects cancer has on women, children, and families. Angela is a dear friend, my age, who I've had the good fortune and blessing to work with for the past ten years or so, currently fighting cancer having been in remission for five plus years prior. I've seen firsthand how brave women like Angela are, how they continue to be there for their children, husbands, families, work committments, all the while adhering to various treatment protocols and days of just needing rest. With all the advances in cancer research treatment, the battle is far from over.
With that in mind, I'd like to introduce you to a brand of beauty and skincare products I've just learned about - Pristine Beauty. As a young breast cancer survivor who had major hair and skin/scarring issues after undergoing cancer fighting treatments, Blaire Kessler made it her mission to create an effective 100% pure, natural skin and hair care range that will change the lives of others. It was out of this need that Pristine Beauty was formed. Not only are all products from the line free of Sulfates, Silicones, Glycols, Parabens, Phthalates, mineral Oil and artificial dyes; but they are also certified VEGAN and Cruelty Free. There's been a lot of talk, for a couple of years now really, debating whether or not these chemicals really negatiely effect our health and bodies. For many cancer survivors and those in the midst of fighting it, there just isn't any reason to test tha theory.
These products not only provide an elegant solution, but give back to others as well - Pristine Beauty donates a portion of their proceeds to the Young Survival Coalition® and the Cancer Prevention Coalition all year and for all products.

My darlings, I'd like to ask for your help and share one more opportunity with you for showing support for cancer research and awareness. A dear friend of mine lost his mother to cancer 10 years ago and is participating in a 12 kilometer walk in the UK (near Cambridge, England) to honor her anniversary in early November. He is eagerly trying to raise funds for support of Cancer Research. Please take a moment and consider a donation to his event. He's just beginning his fundraising, yet doesn't have too long to go. No donation is too small, and any and all support you give would be tremendously appreciated by this angel of mine and by me. You can even donate securely thru your PayPal account. Many thanks! xo
