Izzabees had the honor of participating in a great event for a wonderful cause tonight - the revered Women's Night Out 2013! Naturally, we donated chocolate ganache cupcakes - possibly the best form of love and cheer there is! We were inspired by the women who benefit from this cause and decorated each cake with the motifs of breast cancer awareness in mind. WNO’13 is hosted by the Lexington Medical Center and proceeds from the event benefit the Crystal Smith Fund, a program through the Lexington Medical Center Foundation that helps women undergoing cancer treatment purchase needed supplies.
We are so thankful for the opportunity to contribute something to such a worthy cause and are pleased to share more with you about the organization and the event. From their website:
“What began as a search to learn about her birth family’s health history became a journey that led Heidi Marble to her biological sister!
What began as a search to learn about her birth family’s health history became a journey that led Heidi Marble to her biological sister! But one year later, at the age of 34, Heidi was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer and given a 1 in 1,000 chance of surviving. Five years later, with treatments and both breasts removed, she was cancer-free, but now her sister had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Then they learned that they both carry the BRCA2 breast cancer gene. Despite these challenges, the reunited sisters have shown that there are many paths to healing. Join Heidi and Jen as they share their incredible stories using props, pictures and unedited bantering.”
We hope you will join us for WNO next year!
