Cancer is something that touched my life at a very young age when my dad was diagnosed with throat cancer. It was the summer between 7th and 8th grade. Luckily, he fought cancer and survived, but it was a long and painful road for him and our family.
After working with Fashom on Startup is the New Black, I was very excited to be invited to the Fashom #BeReal campaign. Fashom has brought light to an important subject with it’s be real campaign. They asked local fashion bloggers to style someone battling Cancer to help put a smile on their face, make them feel good about themselves, and give them the energy to fight another day.
I met fashionista at Style Mafia in Wynwood where I picked out some awesome pieces to help her feel great about herself. You can tell from the pictures that we were having a blast! She was such a fun lady! I held back tears (unsuccessfully) when we parted.
The cancer patient and the bloggers were interview about the #BeReal program. You can learn more in the video.
Fashom will be selling #BeReal t-shirts for $15 until the end of November and all proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale chapter.
In addition, anyone who downloads Fashom’s mobile app via iTunes and Google Play and post a photo/selfie with #fashombereal or shares a post from Fashom App with #fashombereal on any of their social networks (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc.) —Fashom will donate $.05 cents for each shout out to the Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale chapter.
I am adding these pics to the Fashom app with #fashombereal to help raise money for the cause.
Thanks so much to Fashom for putting together this campaign. It was beautiful!
