Candle Company Asks for Breast Cancer Stories

June 28, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
To expand its support of breast cancer awareness, a Utah based company is looking for one woman in the United States with breast cancer to highlight on their website and give aid to them emotionally and financially.

For Every Body, a candle and air freshener manufacturer, plans to highlight one woman with breast cancer on their website for one year. The business will help them in areas they need such as daycare, housekeeping and medical bills.

Women can submit their stories to from June 1 to September 30, 2007. For Every Body will announce their selection in October.

“I have been touched by the stories I’ve heard from some of our employees and their family members who have someone in their families who have suffered from breast cancer,” said Becky Lunceford Anderson, founder and co-owner of For Every Body. “I feel very strongly about creating better awareness of breast cancer, and helping one woman through this difficult disease.”

For Every Body has supported breast cancer for the past eight years. They created a pink candle called “Hope for a Cure” in 1999. It was developed to support the crusade against breast cancer. It is sold in several different retail locations throughout the United States. A portion of the proceeds go towards breast cancer research. Every year since 2001 For Every Body has donated over 1,500 “Hope for a Cure” candles to local hospitals in Utah for women who receive a mammogram in October.

According to the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organization, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women in the United States and every woman is at risk. If the cancer is detected early, it can be treated.
