In 2013, CEW partnered with QVC to launch the QVC & CEW Present Beauty with Benefits events, during which viewers shopped a selection of products knowing 80% of the purchase price went to benefit Cancer and Careers. The events have raised over $2.2 million to-date and counting!

industry for Cancer and Careers,” says Kate Sweeney, Executive Director of CEW Foundation. “QVC has championed Cancer and Careers on so many levels, and we are so grateful for our partnership that enables us to change the lives of cancer patients and survivors.”
