For those customers who have gone on my Enchanted Sugar journey with me, you know that my company was created after I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here are three things you can do right now that don’t involve running a marathon:
1. Go through your contacts and send a text to every woman you know over 40 and ask them if they have had a mammogram this year. They need to get this done, early detection is the path to survival.
2. Do you know someone who currently has cancer, a survivor, or someone who has lost someone to cancer? Take them to lunch or dinner and see how they are doing. A caring conversation is the best healing balm.
Sometimes we get so busy in our lives we forget that someone we know is suffering and just needs to hear that you care about them.
3. I believe in keeping donations local, so I encourage you to make a donation to Pink Warrior House (PWH), here in Albuquerque.
Allison who created this wonderful non-profit is connecting patients with local service providers that help someone right now. When you get breast cancer you are not only fighting for your life, you are also handling stress, financial challenges, looking for that perfect wig, and trying to find a bra that fits! PWH can help with so many basic needs for breast cancer patients.
LillyBarrack is offering this beautiful necklace that benefits Pink Warrior House, crafted by a local artist, it is a beautiful gift for someone while also raising money for PWH and the important work they do.
To order one before the end of the month, call Lilly Barrack at 505-345-4300 or visit either of their locations. To make a direct donation, go to PinkWarriorHouse.org.
From time to time, I get asked why I chose pink for my Enchanted Sugar logo, I have even been told it's not a power color for a company.
I chose pink to be the color of my logo because I am a Breast Cancer survivor, and I am reminded of that every time I pour a candle and meet a new customer. Enchanted Sugar exists because I survived and I have never taken that for granted.
Thank you for staying enchanted all these years!
