October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Alex Woo’s array of charitable pendants offers a lovely way to show support for the cause. The designer is one of many affected by breast cancer, as her mother passed away from the disease. Woo’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer organizations is inspiring, and the following pendants are available at a variety of prices to give many people the opportunity to get involved.
Designs include “Tree of Life” pendants, which were created in collaboration with Christina Applegate, a breast cancer survivor, to support Applegate’s Right Action for Women foundation.
Right Action for Women provides assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer and do not have insurance or the financial flexibility to cover the high costs associated with breast screenings.
And net proceeds from the sales of Alex Woo’s “Open Heart” pendants, available in sterling silver and 14k rose gold, go directly to the Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
The Women’s Cancer Research Fund was created by Honorary Chairs Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson and Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, along with, co-founders Kelly Chapman Meyer, Marion Laurie, Anne Douglas, Quinn Ezralow and Jamie Tisch. They joined forces with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a leading charity in Hollywood, to address the issue of cancer and the urgent need to develop new ways to treat it, detect it early, and even prevent it.
Alex Woo also offers the universal symbol for breast cancer, the ribbon, in 14k rose gold and silver with a portion of the proceeds to benefit breast cancer research.
