Proceeds Go to Susan G. Komen and Canadian Charities for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Submitted by Passion Parties
/PRNewswire/ - 32-year-old Sandra Fuentes was nursing her newborn, when she felt a lump in her breast. The wife and mother of three was terrified. In 2002, her mother had lost her battle with the deadly disease, and two of her aunts had already been diagnosed. When Fuentes realized that she had breast cancer, she knew she was in for the fight of her life. After a radical mastectomy, six months of chemotherapy, radiation, a hysterectomy, and breast reconstruction surgery, Fuentes is finally cancer-free. Now, she wants to empower all women with prevention. Fuentes is using her work as a Passion Parties Consultant as a platform to educate women about breast health.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Passion Parties is honored to support Fuentes and other breast cancer survivors by offering Pink Passion Parties. A portion of these party proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for research. Passion Parties are in-home parties for women, where trained sales Consultants showcase fun, romance products, while providing health information and sex tips. In addition to giving passion pointers, Fuentes uses her parties to champion breast cancer awareness.
"One of my major goals in life is to change the face of breast cancer," Fuentes said. "Young women are lulled into a belief that it can't happen to them, but a lot of them were in treatment with me. That's why every woman should be aware of her breast health, and be her own wellness advocate. I'm glad to be working with Passion Parties, which supports research to help women, and I'm telling all of my customers to book a Pink Passion Party to join our efforts."
In addition to donating proceeds from pink-themed parties, Passion Parties will also offer a FREE "Women & Breast Health Guide" with the purchase of the Passion for Pink Rose adult toy. The company will also donate $5 from the sales of this bullet vibrator to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
"Our mission at Passion Parties is to empower women to improve their lives," said Passion Parties President and Chief Executive Officer Pat Davis. "Our ongoing commitment to breast cancer prevention is one example of this. In 2007, we established the Passion Parties Charitable Foundation to benefit non-profits that help women and their families, including the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation."
To further the company's philanthropic contributions, the Passion Parties Charitable Foundation also receives proceeds from the sales of the "Passion Parties Guide to Great Sex," which is written by Davis and published by Random House. (www.passionparties.com/guide.html) Davis continued, "With Pink Parties, our customers can have a great time, and get wonderful passion tips to use with their partners, and fight breast cancer. We are proud to do our part to assist the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and women affected by this horrible disease."
Fuentes added, "During my struggle, Passion Parties was there for me in so many different ways. My sales team was like a family - always encouraging me. And with the company's direct sales business model, I scheduled my own hours and worked as much, or as little as I wanted. That made a huge difference when I was sick from my chemotherapy treatments. Now, I'm cancer-free, with a family and a career that I love. I help women have better relationships with their partners, and I educate them about breast cancer health. I'm truly blessed."
