The Lonon Foundation, a Charleston-based nonprofit that provides ongoing support to children who are affected by their parent or caregiver’s cancer diagnosis, expresses its gratitude to local companies Kendra Scott and The Breast Place. This holiday season, The Lonon Foundation partnered with the two organizations to provide extra support to the children and families the Foundation serves.
The Lonon Foundation hosted a Virtual Giveback Event with Kendra Scott, a leading fashion accessories brand, on December 5th. A total of $500 was raised in stores and online, all of which went directly towards providing supplies and activities for The Lonon Foundation’s spring UPLIFT events. UPLIFT is The Lonon Foundation’s free monthly program for children ages 5-17 who have a parent or caregiver with cancer.
The program was hosted virtually in the fall and will be hosted virtually in the spring as well. The Kendra Scott fundraiser helped provide everything needed for the UPLIFT Spring Boxes, including fun crafts and mindfulness activities for each child in the program.
The Breast Place, located in North Charleston, offers breast services for malignant and benign disease, including genetic testing, breast imaging, survivorship, scar revision, lactation and more. To further support their patients as they “change, age and survive,” The Breast Place also offers a host of wellness and beauty services. This year, The Breast Place continued their partnership with the Lonon Foundation and adopted 10 UPLIFT families for the holidays and provided gifts for them. Cancer can cause a severe financial burden for families and The Breast Place helped tremendously by providing gifts to not only the UPLIFT children and adolescents, but the parents too.
The Lonon Foundation counts on its community, businesses and individuals alike, to help ensure their services reach all Lowcountry families that need support. The Foundation is extremely grateful for the partnership of both Kendra Scott and The Breast Place that brought substantial resources to the Foundation and the families they support this holiday season.
