Is there any reason why breast and ovarian cancer research are so dear to you?
Is there any reason why breast and ovarian cancer research are so dear to you? My mother died from breast cancer, so ever since I did the store, our third window was a breast cancer awareness window. We really wanted people to be aware of it. It’s a business for women and we believe we have a responsibility to take care of our customers. The reason we took on ovarian cancer is because one of our customers in our Boston store came to us and asked us to help her do an event. I realized that most women don’t know the symptoms for ovarian cancer, and they are all duplicate symptoms. I really wanted to make women aware of it, because we want everyone to catch it sooner rather than later. [Photo: Vanessa Williams, Jane Weitzman via]
