Are you ready to join Bella Vita in the fight against breast cancer? We sure hope so because as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Bella Vita will be tying all gift-wrapped purchases with pink bows and donating $1 to the Flying Colors Cancer Network for each gift. We consistently see you, our loyal customers, shopping with us for your friends and family and it is your generosity that has inspired us to give back to a cause that we know has touched so many of your lives.
The Flying Colors Cancer Network is founded by local author and breast cancer survivor Pat Godfrey McRee. She and her team work tirelessly to raise money for women battling breast cancer. Funds raised help women purchase wigs, pay medical expenses and find hope and strength through a network of women all fighting the same battle. You may be familiar with Pat's books, "The Unbook for the Journey through Breast Cancer" and "The Unbook for Men and Women with Cancer". Each unbook is a series of cards with inspirational messages filled with hope, love and strength. Local Mid-South survivors have participated in the Unbook books by writing small bites of essential information to be included in each unbook box. Survivor stories and tips, humor, inspiring quotes, referrals and more fill the pages of the Unbook.
Follow along with us this month as we aim to give $500 plus book proceeds to The Flying Colors Cancer Network. Pat Godfrey McRee will join us throughout the month for book signings so that you too can get more involved with her organization. Dates and times will be posted, so be sure to keep an ear open!
All you need to do is continue to shop for beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts (we know you're all experienced in that!). Each gift you purchase and have wrapped is automatically $1.00 towards saving someones mother, friend, daughter or sister. Together we can pass on the gift of hope, faith and courage.
As always, thanks so much for your support.
