My mom had a doctors appointment and as I was leaving work I got THE phone call. You know the one you wish you never received. It was cancer. That word! The feeling of wanting to be helpful, but not knowing what you could possibly do to help out in that situation. So like any other family we rallied and just showered her with love and support!
Luckily, they caught her cancer early and she has been in remission for years. See what they don’t tell you about the diagnosis is that it goes deeper than that one person. The Cancer is a cancer of the family. My mom never had to fight alone! We were all there fighting with her.
Once Mom was better, we knew that we wanted to help support other families as well. That is why for the past 8 years we have been putting together a fundraiser and donating all of the proceeds to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. This organization helps women all over the state of Rhode Island! Though everyone hopes one day they find a cure, but the Gemma’s focus is with the here and now. They work on a regular basis to give women and men that are living and fighting with breast cancer the support they need now.
We couldn’t have found a better organization to donate our money.
Here is a sneak peak at what we have in store for you this year! Our gift bags will be full of products from companies like OPI, Dove, Utz, Frito Lay, Karma Water, and much more!
Some of our other prizes include a 2 night stay at in Cape Cod, A wine tasting for you and 9 of your closest friends, sports memorabilia, and Golfing.
Here is a tiny peak at some more items.
If you are interested in tickets, or would like to donate to the event please let me know.
