Being a part of the KiSSandMaKeUp team goes beyond hair and makeup. We support one another in so many different ways. A big way we like to give back is by participating in fundraisers and charities for causes near to our hearts. This year, we will be walking in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Like so many others, breast cancer is a very personal cause for me. I am a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer and I encounter the feelings, the questions and the fears women face everyday due to breast cancer. I would like to think that as a Sonographer not only do I provide diagnostic results with imaging, but also offer a warm smile, conversation, and create a positive experience in an otherwise frightening time in a woman’s life.
In addition to my career I also own KiSSandMaKeUp, a company dedicated to beauty services on location and in studio for weddings, photo shoots, and special occasions. With breast cancer affects 1 in every 8 woman you can imagine how many people have sat in my makeup chair affecting by breast cancer. Being able to utilize my passion for makeup to bring a smile on a survivor’s face is unmeasurable, to make a difference in their lives is the best feeling ever. Sometimes it is not even about the transformations makeup can make after the side effects of chemo and radiation, but even just to listen to their story, to their fight. Not only the survivor, but the family member too.
This also gives me the chance to make a difference and to honor those touched by breast cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research, and services for people dealing with breast cancer. I believe that there will come a day where the pain caused by breast cancer is a thing of the past. And until it arrives, I’m walking to inspire hope to those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event to help save lives from breast cancer.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we can make a difference.
