Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths within the United States, affecting one of every 8 women. According to The Center of Disease Control, it is estimated that over 192,000 women have been diagnosed with breast cancer each year and that over 4,000 will lose their lives to the disease.
Violence Against Women is one of the most pressing issue throughout the world. UNITE to End Violence Against Women Fact Sheet indicates that on a global scale, the most common form of violence experienced by women is physical violence inflicted by an intimate partner. Up to 70 percent of women experience physical or sexual violence from men in their lifetime — the majority by husbands, intimate partners or someone they know.
Our Signature Walk-Through Gallery wants to use the arts as a form of healing for youth, young adults, and women who battle cancer or have suffered abuse in some shape of form. Awareness isn’t just about sharing the stats or informing women to have exams or to recognize the signs of abuse, but it includes providing positive and empowering outlets designed to uplift, restore, and ignite change. Survivors need to be reassured and shown that they are still beautiful in the midst of the downsides.
We have a Signature Mobile PAMPERING Station that is part of our gallery and pulls together hair stylist, make-up artist, nail technicians, and fashion experts to not only pamper our pre-registered guest, but to provide our survivors with an on-site mini makeover the day of the showcase.
The Walk-Through Gallery Mobile PAMPERING Station hopes to not only pamper our survivors and provide them with beauty tips they can use at home, but to provide a forum they look forward to every year to form lasting friendships they can lean on for support as they go through yet another year of loving their Scars of Victory.
We select 12 winners we feel exudes a strength, power, and force to be recognized with, and who can share valuable tips, tools, and techniques they’ve applied that has truly helped them on a day to day basis. These same 12 winners are selected to appear in a Gallery Signature ‘Positive Affirmation’ calendar celebrating life and our Scars of Victory within this life. The calendars will not have a year attached to it but instead have four (4) weeks of inspirational and empowering quotes for each month that are meant to encourage - each and every, week for one full year. A great, unique gift of comfort for self or a loved one!
