Breast cancer survivor and award-winning blogger of Thesilverpen.com Hollye Jacobs will be at a book signing for her first tome today at the Macy’s Herald Square flagship. Titled “The Silver Lining: A Supportive & Insightful Guide to Breast Cancer,” the book informs women how to cope with the disease and its treatments and options, as well as practical matters such as what to bring to chemo and how to talk to children and relatives about cancer.
The event is in conjunction with Wacoal’s charitable “Fit for the Cure” program that supports breast cancer awareness, research and treatment through its partnership with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Wacoal sponsors nearly 1,200 “Fit for the Cure” bra fitting events at retailers every year where an average of 53,000 women are fitted. This will mark Wacoal’s 14th year with the Komen foundation for which Wacoal has raised nearly $4 million for the organization’s breast cancer research and community health programs. Wacoal donates $2 to the Komen foundation for every woman who gets fitted without a purchase, and also donates an additional $2 for every bra or shapewear piece by Wacoal or b.tempt’d purchased that day.
