The Camisole Project was founded by Barb Daize, owner of BodyMed Boutique in Burlington, Ontario, in 2011. Having been touched in many ways by breast cancer, Barb wanted to pay it forward and provide comfort and dignity to those women having breast cancer surgery. Breast Cancer has affected many women close to the MarShield family and we are thankful for the Divas who help these women. Being in the Medical industry ourselves, we understand the importance of these charities and will continue our support efforts for many years to come.
A delegation from the MarShield family attended the Beautiful You, Boots & Bling event on Friday September 25, 2015 at the Polish Hall in Burlington. We had an awesome night with Lots of dancing, laughing ,fun and great food. The prizes that were generously donated were fantastic. The event raised $20,054.00 So that is 360 Camisoles and the Encore program for another season !
The Diva’s “Beautiful You” event raise money to offer a free camisole and pillow to every women who has to undergo surgery for breast cancer. The camisole help women to feel better about themselves and make them as comfortable as possible during treatment and recovery. The Encore program is run through the YWCA offering free support to women who have undergone surgery. Women learn exercises, health nutrition and most of all support with other women.
Marswell Industries (MarShield, MarsMetal and MarsKeel) is proud to support such a great event and cause.
