Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer has touched many of our lives in so many different ways.  Some of us have experienced it first-hand, while others have experienced it through a close loved one or friend. October, as you likely know, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; we thought it would be an appropriate time to let you know how it’s currently affecting us.

Meet Brenda, one of our star employees. Brenda works in the warehouse, having been hired after her son Michael introduced her to Jeff, our CEO.  You may recognize Michael in that picture with his mom below – he was cast on the “Survivor: One World” season on CBS (http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/).



Shortly after joining our team, Brenda was diagnosed with breast cancer. For the past several months, she has been going through treatment. It hasn’t been easy, but she still comes in when she is able and is as dedicated and hard-working as she was her first day on the job. Brenda is an amazing woman and we are proud to have her as part of the team.

We would like to encourage you to read a little more about Brenda in this GoFundMe page Michael set up for her. It’s called “One Survivor to the Next Survivor.”

Michael states his inspiration behind creating the page:

“I set this charity up to help (my mom) buy a few nice wigs and help with other medical expenses. Although her insurance covers most of her treatments, a cranial prosthetic (wig) is not covered. Nice wigs are very expensive. I want my Mom to feel comfortable around friends, family and strangers. I want her to be the happiest she can during this tough time.”

We know every little bit helps in the hope for a cure. During the month of October, we will be donating some of the proceeds from our Breast Cancer Awareness category to benefit breast cancer research.
