Pampering with a Purpose
Among our family of employees at TerraNova, we have been touched by breast cancer—luckily with successful treatments. We also have friends and family who, tragically, have not survived this terrible disease. Thanks to improvements in early detection and treatment, millions of women are surviving breast cancer today.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) educates women about the importance of early detection for breast cancer. Since NBCAM’s inception, mammography use has doubled and breast cancer death rates have declined. Still, many women do not utilize early detection methods, such as self-exam or mammography, at regular intervals.
We urge all women and their families to get the facts about early detection and mammography. Check out the following websites for more useful information.

In our community of the San Francsico Bay Area, we have chosen to support the Women’s Cancer Resource Center, a local organization that provides outreach, educational and support services, including in-home support, to low-income women.
During the month of October, TerraNova will be offering two Breast Cancer Awareness sets, in our Tuberose and Peony Bliss fragrance lines on our website storeterranovabody.com. For every set sold, we will donate $1.00 to the Women’s Cancer Resource Center. You’ll find these limited edition sets under the “Gift Sets” category and also in their respective lines.
Thank you for your continued support, and please share your thoughts and comments with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
