Stella & Dot News & Updates

How time has flown this September! For those of you with children in school, I bet the last few weeks have been a blur. As a classroom teacher, the first few weeks of school are always difficult - getting back into the routine and groove of the school year can be challenging after the carefree days of summer.

I am so excited to announce that Stella & Dot has partnered with the Noreen Fraser Foundation again this fall to increase awareness and raise money for Breast Cancer Research. I would love to throw you and your friends a trunk show in October to not only share the fall line, but also benefiting Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.

Xoxo,

Shop or Host to Support Breast Cancer Awareness

As an informed consumer, you may have questions about where your money will go. Below I have complied some information about the Noreen Fraser Foundation.

Where will the proceeds of the Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique be donated?

We will be donating 100% of the boutique’s net proceeds to the Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF). This is our third year partnering with this foundation, raising over $245,000 to date!

Who is Noreen Fraser? What is the mission of her foundation?
Noreen Fraser was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in 2001. By 2003, her cancer had metastasized to her bones. After years of fighting, Noreen pledged to devote herself to raising money for focused research to find new techniques to prevent and fight cancer.
She started the Noreen Fraser Foundation in 2006 and recruited other survivors and prominent figures in the medical, entertainment, and business industries to join the organization. In 2008, Noreen Fraser co-created and co-produced the network television special STAND UP TO CANCER (“which raised over $100 million for cancer research”).
Prior to starting the Noreen Fraser Foundation, Noreen produced other award winning television shows including, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, ABC’s HOME SHOW and The RICHARD SIMMONS SHOW. Recently, Noreen has started working on producing a documentary about cancer’s effects and developing a television project that will serve to raise awareness for women’s cancers.
The mission of the Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF) is to raise funds for women’s cancer research. NFF supports translational cancer research aimed at developing new prevention methods, diagnostic tools and non-toxic therapies to treat women’s cancers. Our hope is that until there are CURES, women’s cancers will become manageable diseases controlled with targeted therapies that protect patients’ quality of life. The Noreen Fraser Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

What are some of the ways Stella & Dot’s past donations have helped in the fight against women’s cancers and breast cancer?
Through the work of the NFF, we have helped fund multiple studies helping to discover the root causes of women’s cancers including triple negative breast cancer, a form with the fewest treatment options. Another funded study has identified the numerous subtypes of cancer involving breast cancer. This study has been a leader in experimental therapies including one that has stabilized Noreen’s stage IV cancer for 18 months! We have also helped fund the Prevention/Risk Reduction Initiative reaching millions of girls and adults that helps to educate young women about the importance of healthy behaviors early in their lives that may reduce the risk of breast cancer later on. For more details on these funding examples, please reach out to foundation@stelladot.com.
