Today, May 8th, 2014, is World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day. And the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (LMOCF) is thrilled to announce its partnership with glassybaby in support of LMOCF. glassybaby will offer NEW limited-edition teal ‘strength’ votive candles with 10% of all proceeds from each purchase donated to LMOCF.
“World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day is the perfect time to be inspired by this cause,” stated Claudia Poccia, President and CEO of Gurwitch Products. “Getting more people involved is the first step in creating greater awareness for this disease. LMOCF is pleased to recommend four ways to do something special and meaningful today.”
4 Ways To Get Involved On World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day:
1. Give a Gift that Gives Back: Mother’s Day is just days away and Laura Mercier cosmetics donates 100% of the profits from the sale of Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette to the Fund. Or pick up the NEW limited-edition teal ‘strength’ votive candles from glassybaby.com.
2. Educate yourself about the disease: Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers in the United States, and most women newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already in advanced stages of the disease. To learn about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, please visit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s website HERE!
3. Spread the word online and offline: Talk to your friends and family members about what you’ve learned. You can join the Speak Out for Hope conversation online by following @LauraMercier on Twitter and Instagram and use #LMOCF, #SpeakOutForHope to support this important cause. Visit the Stories of Hope Gallery on the Laura Mercier Facebook page for inspiring messages from our community.
4. Donate: Consider a direct donation to LMOCF to continue our mission to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.
