I didn't know that makeup artist Sonia Kashuk was a breast cancer survivor, but it turns out she had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed last year. Sadly, breast cancer runs in her family—both her grandmother and mother were diagnosed with the disease—but fortunately, Sonia is healthy now.
Now that she's beaten cancer, she's planning some new products for her Target cosmetics line, and money raised will benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. As Sonia says:
I will be offering a special brush set, cosmetic bag and toiletries case at Target stores nationwide to raise money to support breast cancer research. I am most honored and proud to tell you that 100% of the profits will be donated to BCRF. I ask you from deep within my heart and soul to help me in this fight to raise awareness and money for breast cancer.
The products will be available in October, when is when many other pink-ribbon products hit stores, too. But I'll be looking forward to buying Sonia's among all the rest, simply because it's clearly a cause that's dear to her. Congratulations to Sonia for regaining her health, and for doing something to help other women.
