Bigger Than Beauty™ Spotlight: National Breast Cancer Foundation

Headquartered in Frisco, TX and with a reach across the country, National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has been supporting women affected by Breast Cancer through early detection, education and supportive services for nearly 30 years.

Thrive Causemetics was honored to chat with our friend Danae Johnson of NBCF about our Giving Partnership and how our customers play a huge part in their work!

How has NBCF’s partnership with Thrive Causemetics impacted the women you serve?
Thrive donated to our organization, giving us the opportunity to provide women with a tangible expression of hope through our Hope Kit program and outreach events across the country.

Each item in the Hope Kit is thoughtfully hand selected to ease potential side effects and provide comfort to women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

How does Breast Cancer impact someone’s self-confidence?
Many women experience an initial shock after they are diagnosed. A common remark I hear is “I never thought this would happen to me.” There are fears of the unknown and unanswered questions. It’s hard to trust yourself when you’ve never walked down that specific road. Insecurities about body image are prevalent, but true beauty starts within. So surround yourself with those that encourage you and help you feel beautiful.

How are women impacted by donations made possible by the Thrive Causemetics Customers?
You are empowering women through the gift of high-quality makeup. However, it is so much more than makeup. You are extending hope just like NBCF by enabling women to recognize their value and worth, and allowing their inner beauty to shine.

What are some highlights from your partnership with Thrive Causemetics?
We had a makeover event at NBCF’s headquarters to help breast cancer patients feel beautiful. These women were in treatment and had been focusing on fighting for their lives for months. Our collective goal was to make the day all about them and empower them to see the beauty in their strength. The smiles and tears of joy when they looked at themselves in the mirror were priceless.

What does it mean to “Thrive” at NBCF?
Living a life of hope even when you are in a season of despair. Never giving up, even when the journey is difficult, and making the most of every day.
