It has always been Grohen’s position to give back. Over the last several months, we have made donations to Lung Cancer as well as “STAND UP 2 CANCER,” where 100% of all donations are used for cancer research.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This year we will be donating a portion of our October sales to Cancer Care. Whether you are on our auto ship program or you just choose to order any one of our products, your sale will help with research in the hopes of finding a cure for breast cancer.
I am always reminded of the time when I was a small child and my Mother’s friend came to visit. I couldn’t take my eyes off one of her arms. It was twice the size of the other and looked very scary. She had breast cancer.
A few months later she passed away. That was over 60 years ago. We have made such wonderful progress, thanks to the many dedicated men and women who have been studying and researching cures for this deadly disease. Across the country, especially this month, there are fund raisers to help with the research and support groups for those who need to talk about their issues.
It is suggested that 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. However, breast cancer incidence rate started to decrease around 2000. It is believed that due to aggressive research studies (Women’s Health Initiative) which was published in 2002, showing that the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), in fact, increased the risk of breast cancer in women.
That’s the reason I chose to go off of all hormones after spending 10 years on HRT.
If we can make a little difference in helping women feel better, physically, sexually and mentally during this difficult time, then we are accomplishing our mission. I am fortunate to be working with two dedicated doctors, Dr. Miriam Greene and Dr. Leo Galland, who share the same vision.
We are Women Helping Women to keep the conversation going. Live life to the fullest, and don’t forget to get a yearly mammogram and see your gynecologist every year.
…and for those of you who are going through chemotherapy, radiation, or any other treatments that might cause your body to feel dry and uncomfortable: know that there is a natural solution: That’s the secret of Vaginal Renewal Complex.
