A Fitting Tribute: Our Mom, Our Bras & Our Susan G. Komen® + Friends Partnership

A Fitting Tribute: Our Mom, Our Bras & Our Susan G. Komen® + Friends Partnership

The meaningful reason we’ve joined the Susan G. Komen® + Friends of Komen Program.

Our mom, the inspiration behind heart&core, was a huge fan of participating the Susan G. Komen® Race for the Cure® every Mother’s Day in Minneapolis, where I live. She loved getting her new T-shirt each year and proudly wore it that day and the days after. It was her day to celebrate beating cancer! And we loved walking as a family. We even wore costumes one year, which made it even more fun for her. 

Little did we know the cancer would come back and that she wouldn’t beat it the second time — but it was not without putting up a fight. After she passed away, my dad took all of her old T-shirts from trips she had been on, events she had been to and, of course, her Komen Race for the Cure® T-shirts and had them made into a blanket. He made one for Lara and me — and one for himself too. We all still have ours and love that they remind us of how much life my mom got to live and enjoy.

This month, we are celebrating and supporting what Susan G. Komen® is doing for women with breast cancer. We’re donating 20% of all online purchases of our Larissa, Serena and Shirl Post-Surgical Bras and eGift Cards to the organization's work to create a world without breast cancer. We thought May was a perfect month to do it in honor of our mom — and all the great moms out there!

Whether you've personally been touched by breast cancer as a survivor or loved one or caregiver of a survivor, we support you.
