Montelle Intimates Supports Cedars Breast Cancer Program
“This year, a member of our team was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was because of her battle that we selected the Cedars Breast Cancer Program to benefit from our initiative.”
Sometimes the human element gets lost in a month as important as Breast Cancer Awareness. We’re so awash in messaging and pink ribbon imagery that you have to step back and focus on people.
This week, we want to bring special attention to the work Montelle Intimates put forward for Breast Cancer Awareness month this year.
