The Dolls are no stranger to the vibrant color PINK! This happy hue represents caring , compassion, love and is associated with giving and receiving care. Perhaps this is why it’s the chosen color of Breast Cancer Awareness. Did you know that nearly 250,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year? That could be your mother, sister, best friend… or even you. Caitlin and Danielle have been touched by the work of American Cancer Society to raise awareness and funds and ultimately save lives. These Dolls have a HUGE announcement…. Once Upon a Dollhouse is the official social media sponsor of Chicago’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
By living life one moment at a time – one step at a time, we can all take strides together. Every October, American Cancer Society holds a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event so anyone touched by breast cancer won’t have to face their diagnosis alone. This helps raise awareness and money to fund research, support services, and early detection. These Making Strides events save lives. We are putting together a DOLL team and we would LOVE for you to join us!
Hope is the only thing stronger than fear. Grab your mom – your sister – your best friend and commit to helping Dolls everywhere. This year’s event will be held at Soldier Field and is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that makes a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. Join our team here!
The American Cancer Society has played a critical role in many breast cancer research breakthroughs in recent history – and the next breakthrough could be right around the corner because money raised through Making Strides events currently helps fund countless research and training grants in areas including genetics, drug development, and epidemiological studies. Previously the American Cancer Society has funded potentially lifesaving breast cancer drugs such as Tamoxifen and Herceptin. Money raised this year could go to develop the next generation of lifesaving treatments.
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. – Audrey Hepburn
