ShoeDazzle’s Pink Line Donates to Susan G Komen Foundation

To commemorate October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ShoeDazzle has created a special pink line consisting of a hot pink bootie, a sassy scarf, and an eye catching clutch.

ShoeDazzle will donate 10% of sales of the Beth shoe, the Hope Bag and the Baila scarf-and-pin —each named for an inspiring woman who has battled breast cancer — to Susan G Komen Foundation for the Cure for research and treatment of the disease.

The Beth

Beauty inspired by strength; Beth pays homage to one woman’s courageous battle with breast cancer. Beth Martinez was diagnosed at the age of 49 while serving on active duty. With her husband in Iraq and her family far away, she was forced to cope with the devastating news alone. When her husband was able to return, Beth underwent a modified radical mascetomy on her right breast and spent a week waiting to find out if the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes. It hadn’t. Unfortunately, Beth’s niece was also struggling with breast cancer. Hoping to prevent a relapse like the one that would ultimately claim her niece’s life, Beth made the brave decision to have her left breast removed as well. It took six surgeries but we are thrilled to say that Beth remains cancer-free today.

ShoeDazzle is proud to offer this boot as a symbol of Beth’s strength and the strength of all women battling breast cancer.

The Baila

Priscilla Amador comes from a family with a long history of breast cancer; she’s lost her grandmother and her great grandmother. Her own mother was diagnosed–not once–but twice. The first time, she received the painful news while pregnant with Priscilla’s younger brother. After both bouts with breast cancer, Pricilla’s mom refused to succumb to the disease and, instead, focused on her dreams of being a dancer. Today, she is cancer-free and dancing in shows that benefit breast cancer research! Baila is inspired by her confidence and dedication to her dreams.

The Hope

As Cyndi Poe noted, when circumstances stand in the way of our dreams—when looking to overcome breast cancer—“hope” is all we have. We should all clutch to hope and keep on dancing while we race for the cure.
