Every person on the Salon Khouri team has known someone who has battled breast cancer. It’s an awful disease that affects millions of women worldwide. The rates of breast cancer affecting younger women, aged 15-45) is on the rise. Thankfully, Tigerlily Foundation, a 501(c)(3) international nonprofit organization headquartered in Reston, Virgina, meets their specific needs. Tigerlily Foundation provides education, advocacy and support to young women before, during and after breast cancer. Its outreach focuses on the breast cancer community as a whole and includes family, friends, health advocates, physicians, researchers and more.
Any woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer clearly understands the wide range of emotions, physical symptoms, financial impact, conflicting opinions, and the entire roller coaster ride of breast cancer. Tigerlily provides much needed emotional support during this time.
We invite you to watch their online series, BreatheTV. The latest episode [at the time of this post] focuses on the various and ongoing fears that a cancer diagnosis can bring and addresses the emotions that a patient may experience while living with this fear and the ways they can overcome it, the challenges of survivorship, and how they can use their support network to help them through this process.
We are honored to once again partner with Tigerlily Foundation this October and are donating $1 from every haircut we perform this month to this amazing non-profit.
