Online Retailer Pretty Pieces Goes Teal for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
Pretty Pieces, an online retail store, goes teal for ovarian cancer awareness month. They are supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance with donations and running a giveaway for women with ovarian cancer.
August 27, 2016 ( datsyn.com) – For the entire month of September, online retailer, Pretty Pieces, is supporting Ovarian Cancer Awareness by going teal. The support will include donations to the OCRFA (Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance), and a giveaway for women suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy treatments for ovarian cancer. The winner will receive a full hair replacement unit courtesy of Pretty Pieces.
According to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, “A woman’s lifetime risk of developing invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 75; A woman’s lifetime risk of dying from invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 100”. Nicole Banks, the owner of the online retail store, happens to be among the 1 out of 75 women that suffer from ovarian cancer, and she has decided to support other women like her in the fight against this devastating disease.
Nicole Banks was diagnosed of ovarian cancer 10 years ago at the age of 29, and this was the primary cause of her infertility problems, according to her. Her story is one of survival and provides great courage and encouragement to women in the same situation as her. Her blog contains more information about her and how she has managed to live a normal and fruitful life since the onset of the disease.
Aside from supporting the OCRFA, Nicole Banks will also assist in raising awareness of the disease through the launch of her Real Pretty Real Teal clothing collection. A portion of the proceeds from this new clothing collection will be donated to the OCFRA. As a result, it’s not just a one-off donation – the donations will continue for as long as the clothing collection keeps selling, and that could be forever.
Women interested in the giveaway can contact Pretty Pieces through their website to join the list of potential winners.
