Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Ashleigh’s Story

Ashleigh with “Cordel,” an elegant, beautiful arrangement named after her mother that symbolizes hope, love, and strength.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month dedicated to education, understanding, and fund-raising for a cure.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, one of our employees, Ashleigh wanted to share her experience as a daughter of a breast cancer survivor.

“Just over one year ago, we received the worst news ever. But thanks to early detection, I still have my mom with me today.

An annual mammogram helped save my mom’s life. Her breast cancer was caught at a very early stage, and although the long process of doctor’s appointments, surgeries, and treatments was extremely tiresome and stressful, it was all worth it. Why? Because today, she has a clean bill of health, and is back to a happy, cancer-free life.

During my mom’s treatment, I was privileged to show love and care towards my mother, who has always done her absolute best to love and care for me. I’m so thankful I could be here to help her through the difficult process of fighting breast cancer. The comfort found in God’s word, the Bible, and the strength and support He provides, were crucial to being able to cope with the stress of the situation.

Being directly affected by cancer has made me more thankful for each day of life that I get to enjoy with my friends and family.”


This October, we want to celebrate the strength of those affected by breast cancer and help aid in the fight. That’s why we will be donating 10% of every purchase from our Pink Ribbon Month Collection to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). BCRF is a national foundation dedicated to the prevention and cure of breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Learn more about the cause at
