Are you interested in supporting a friend with breast cancer? This October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are joining the fight against this terrible disease and supporting the breast cancer community in a few special ways. Whether the breast cancer patient in your life is on Team Pink, or Team Anything But Pink, we have suggestions for how to make a meaningful difference in their lives.
Gift Giving, Multiplied.
Give the gift of a custom quilt this October. Our quilts are an ideal gift for a friend with breast cancer because they provide a physical reminder of their circle of friends during times of isolation, sadness and fear. In addition, our quilts are backed with cozy white sherpa and weigh about 4lbs, making them the perfect blanket for chilly hospital rooms. Quiltlove quilts are made to order and can be made in any color desired. Bring the pink, or don’t. It’s up to you!
We are pleased to announce a special partnership with Fighting Pretty for the month of October! Quiltlove is donating 10 percent of proceeds from all Breast Cancer Support quilts ordered by 10/31 to Fighting Pretty. Fighting Pretty is a nonprofit on a mission to help women battling cancer feel strong and beautiful. It was founded by a breast cancer survivor and has a 90/100 score on Charity Navigator.
Quiltlove quilts are the most meaningful way of supporting a friend with breast cancer because you can literally wrap them in their support network’s love. In addition, our simple online ordering process makes it an easy group gift to coordinate and affordable for all. No artistic ability or sewing skills required.
Get Active in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
We are back for another year at Making Strides, this time in beautiful Crissy Field, San Francisco. Join or create a team, raise critical funds and put on your sneakers. Quiltlove is donating a voucher for a free quilt to one lucky Making Strides fundraiser — it could be you!
But you’ll have to stay tuned for more details on how to win. 🙂
Supporting a friend with breast cancer takes a village and the team at Making Strides puts strength in numbers on display.
I will be at Crissy Field on 10/16 working the event as a volunteer at the Wall of Hope. I am a huge fan of the Making Strides community and would love to connect with you! Come say hi! Fun fact: My first internship was working for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in New York City, circa 2001!
According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 300,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the United States this year. Roughly one in every eight American women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. Let’s work together to continue supporting our friends and family members facing this devastating disease, this October, and all year long.
As always, thanks for reading.
