Caring Causes: New Normal Program

Tigerlily Foundation, a leading national non-profit organization for young women with breast cancer, announces an exciting new program hosted by partners supporting the foundation’s mission of educating, advocating for, empowering and supporting young women - before, during and after breast cancer. 
Now through November 15th, Shea Moisture is taking a stand to make a difference in the lives of young women by supporting Tigerlily Foundation's New Normal Program.  The New Normal Program covers costs for patients to receive complementary treatments such as acupuncture, massage, coaching, Reiki, yoga and more. Upon approval, the applicant may select a service in their area and Tigerlily Foundation will then process a payment for the service directly to the service provider.  The goal is to support young breast cancer survivors in their survivorship process and improve their quality of life after treatment, by helping them to find their "New Normal".  Through this partnership, Shea Moisture is donating a limited supply of which Tigerlily Foundation will send out to approved applicants.

Supporting this initiative is simple. Just visit Shea Moisture and click on the picture of the young breast cancer survivors pictured on their home page to check out their look. Then, if you want that look, buy any make-up product. Shea Moisture will donate a matching product to the Tigerlily Foundation New Normal Program, which supports survivorship and quality of life improvement after diagnosis. 
You can also support Tigerlily Foundation by donating.
About Tigerlily Foundation:
Tigerlily Foundation is a national breast cancer foundation providing education, awareness, advocacy and hands-on support to young women (15-40) – before, during and after breast cancer. Their goal is to provide them with important breast health information that could someday save their lives or the lives of their peers. They teach young women at an early age about their breast health, their bodies and ways to be their own best advocate. Education and early detection can save lives. Tigerlily Foundation supports education, awareness, advocacy, services and support to young women diagnosed with, living with and surviving breast cancer. This empowers young women to live their lives and fulfill their dreams.
Tigerlily Foundation was founded by Maimah Karmo, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer at 32 years old. Maimah is committed to educating young women around the world about breast cancer; and empowering them to be their own best advocates. She is dedicated to changing the young adult breast cancer landscape and seeks to impact the quality of care and lifestyle for young women affected by this disease.  She chose to name the organization Tigerlily because like a flower loses its petals in the Fall and Winter, then blossoms and grows in the Spring and Summer, a woman undergoing treatment can also find her true beauty, strength and be transformed during and after breast cancer. Maimah is also the author of "Fearless:  Awakening to My Life's Purpose Through Breast Cancer", the Publisher of Bliss Magazine, and proud mother of 12-year old Noelle.
Tigerlily Foundation focuses on education, prevention and support by offering programs such as the Funds for Families Program (providing financial assistance), Hope Bag Program (providing newly diagnosed women Hope Bags that include goodies to pamper, soothe, educate, empower and manage stress during treatment), At Home Program (offering household-needs and grocery gift cards to patients), Peer Education Through Awareness and Leadership (PETALs) Program (providing prevention education for girls and young women) and many other programs. In addition, TigerLily Foundation advocates on Capital Hill for young women’s breast health issues, through the Hill panel discussions.
