Our friend May Lindstrom recently introduced us to a “small, but mighty organization changing lives in the best way possible,” so we reached out to The Foundation for Living Beauty to learn more about their work. Since 2005, they’ve been providing support and empowerment to women cancer patients as they navigate one of the biggest challenges of their lives. Over 500 Living Beauties are embracing the resources and community that is available to them at no cost.
With over 30 retreats, educational seminars, sisterhood-building activities each year--in addition to an active Facebook community of Living Beauties--they’ve built a network of empowerment, resilience, empathy, hope and self-healing. While many of their Living Beauties come from Southern California, women from all over the country have joined the community.
Dyan, a Living Beauty, describes how this sisterhood has helped to her in the face of a second diagnosis. “My first diagnoses taught me that I needed to be vulnerable,” she says. “With my second diagnoses, I am learning HOW to be vulnerable. To embrace all its power, its strengths, its beauty and its full potential. That being vulnerable actually makes you stronger.”
The Foundation for Living Beauty has helped Dyan and so many others explore their vulnerability and begin healing with an amazing sisterhood of support. We encourage you to learn more about their work, to find out how you can get involved or donate, or recommend the Foundation for Living Beauty to someone you love.
Through December 3rd, Alima Pure is donating $5 from the sale of every Holiday Set to the Foundation for Living Beauty. Thank you so much to our customers who make our support possible!
