Morgan Hermand-Waiche, Adore Me founder & CEO:
"Adore Me is dedicated to empowering women. We are delighted to partner with PinkChoseMe and happy to welcome Tiffany as a guest speaker on Thursday when she shares her inspiring personal story of survival our staff and customers.
We are delighted to contribute to the effort to fund a cure for breast cancer awareness through the PinkChoseMe Foundation."
Tiffany Jones, PinkChoseMe founder:
"PinkChoseMe Foundation partnered with lingerie fashion week a couple of years ago. It was a fun, powerful and empowering event. When Adore Me reached out to us we were overjoyed and excited to jump on board. The question is why? It's important to me and the organization that being diagnosed with breast cancer does not mean putting your head in the sand, being diagnosed with breast cancer gave me purpose.
'Women are being diagnosed with breast cancer younger and younger; I've seen the wildest stories of young women losing their mind, thinking I'm not worthy.' No man is going to want me because I don't have my breast or don't have nipples. I've seen and witnessed so many tragic stories.' That's why I founded PinkChoseMe Foundation, a nonprofit focused on educating women about preventative care and offering them the tools to face their inner and outer beauty challenges."
